Hazen High School will be hosting Nick of Time Foundation Wednesday, April 3 for ECG youth heart screenings.

The event will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the school’s gym, 1011 Hoquiam Ave. NE in Renton.

The screenings are available to those ages 14 to 24 years old. Attendees do not have to be Hazen students to be eligible for the screenings.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest is the leading cause of sudden death in exercising “at-play” young people, according to an event poster. It is typically the result of an undiagnosed structural or electrical problem.

The goal of the foundation and these screenings is to reduce the number of deaths from sudden cardiac arrest through early detection as well as raise awareness and educate communities about sudden cardiac arrest, warning symptoms and the value of heart screenings, the poster read.

Student screening forms can be found online at the Nick of Time Foundation’s website.

To schedule an appointment, return the form to Hazen’s main office or scan/email to Vicki Olson at vicki.olson@rentonschools.us or 425-204-4250.

Tax deductible donations of $25 can be made online at the foundation’s website. Cash or checks can also be made to Nick of Time Foundation and submitted with the completed form or at the appointment.
