Heart Screening is Back!
Our screening calendar is starting to populate as schools and athletic departments are returning to play, and we are so excited to be back at work!
Heart screening is more necessary now than ever.
Students returning to play after months off need to make sure their hearts are ready. And any young person who was exposed to the coronavirus will need to monitor their hearts closely.
We updated our Safety and Cleaning protocols for the cleanest and safest screening method possible, and are updating regularly as new guidelines are released. Every school will have its own needs and, as always, we are flexible.
If your spring screening was canceled because of school closures, email us TODAY and we'll reschedule any time.
If you have any questions about our commitment to health and safety, please let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Cody Stephens Go Big or Go Home Memorial Foundation was founded in memory of Cody Stephens, who died from an undetected heart condition just weeks before graduation from Crosby High School.
Before he died, Cody was talking to his father, Scott, about his goals to play football in a big way in college and beyond. Cody told Scott, "Go big or go home, Dad."
After Cody died, his family turned Cody's motto into a screening effort to prevent other tragedies. It has been a BIG effort in a BIG state - seven years after Cody died, more than 30% of all Texas schools now offer heart screening.
Texas House Bill 76, Cody's law, was passed in the 2019 state legislature, which gives parents in every school district the right to choose heart screening for their child.
The Cody Stephens Foundation partners with the largest to the smallest schools, in the big cities and the smallest communities.
Cody believed in going big.
We believe going big means everyone should have the opportunity to compete with a healthy heart, no matter where they live or how well they play.
