Dear Parents,

I wanted to make you aware of an excellent opportunity that’s been made available to our athletes at Jackson High School & Jackson Middle School. We are again partnering with mCORE™ — Mobile Cardiac Overview and Risk Evaluation — to screen our athletes for the cardiac conditions and abnormalities which may put them at risk of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).  SCA Is The Number One Killer of Young Athletes.  SCA is the result of unsuspecting cardiological disease or abnormalities which cause the heart to stop without warning or symptoms. We hear about several student-athletes each year that are lost to this devastating tragedy, many of which could have been prevented with a simple examination like this. Space is limited, so sign up today at www.mcoreathletes.com.  For more information on mCORE and SCA please watch this 4-minute vieo:  https://vimeo.com/53605191/

Please contact mCORE should financial hardship preclude you from taking part.

We strongly encourage all of our athletes to take part in this screening opportunity. If you have further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.
