How the My-HeartCheck comes together to impact the most kid’s lives
My-HeartCheck is supported by non-profit funds that help us offer the highest quality program while keeping the cost of testing to a minimum. One of the requirements to sustain those funds is that we hold events that will ensure the efficient use of those resources. Each event is looked at independently based on the potential number of kids tested, travel cost, and estimated financial obligation required. Because of this, we and our non-profit partners need the commitment to communicate the opportunity to your parents through all means possible.
A couple of things we have learned: We find parents/guardians really appreciate schools and organizations offering these tests and say so when they come to the event. They often hear about kids unexpectedly collapsing and wonder if it could happen to their child. We try to do everything we can to make sure they all know about the opportunity while requiring as little time as possible from you and your organization.
How we get things started…
Step 1. Identify a date for the screening that works for both you and My-HeartCheck.
Step 2. Identify the right location and space to hold the event. Typically, a gym, commons area or large classroom. The location should be easily accessible for families and needs to be approx. 30′ x 40′ of open space.
Step 3. Get the provided message to mom and dad through direct email and social media. Communication to families should typically begin 4-8 weeks prior to the screening date.
