Heart Screening

My wife being a Cardiac Ultrasound Technician, and I being a teacher of Health and Fitness, it only makes sense to encourage all of the Whisper Runners to undergo cardiac screening, if for nothing else, to learn a little bit more about yourself. 

Online registration begins January 9th.  We will have practice from 9-11am, so if you would like have your child take part in the heart screening, try to do so after practice, being sure they have had a small bite to eat after practice as well.

Click on the following link for more information: Teen Heart Screening.

Make your best attempt at registering for an appointment around practice times..
