Area Rotary clubs formed a unique partnership with the Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Foundation to help prevent premature deaths of seemingly healthy young athletes. In past years the clubs raised funds to provide free ultrasound heart scans to area high school sophomore athletes to uncover cardiomyopathy, which may produce sudden heart attacks during strenuous activities. Twice a year, Sarah Bush Lincoln provides free echocardiograms to high school sophomore athletes. So far, 3,237 high school athletes from 20 area schools have taken advantage of this life-saving and painless test.
