Area Rotary clubs formed a unique partnership with the Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Foundation to help prevent premature deaths of seemingly healthy young athletes. Rotary clubs raise funds to provide free heart screenings to area high school sophomore athletes to uncover dangerous electrical abnormalities of the heart in addition to cardiomyopathy, an abnormality which can cause sudden death of athletes in the heat of competition. Twice a year, Sarah Bush Lincoln provides this free screening program to high school sophomore athletes.
