Mission Statement

To educate, spread awareness, and prevention for undetected heart conditions/diseases which could lead to Sudden Cardiac Arrest in our youth. We feel it is an important issue that needs to be addressed and brought to light, to help save lives of our youth. It is our mission to get the word out and prevent this from happening to other children and families. We eventually want to provide financial assistance or otherwise to families who have children with heart diease.

Description

KAP for the Heart is a charitable organization created in loving memory Kieran Popp who passed away from Sudden Cardiac Arrest due to an undiagnosed heart condition in September 2015 at the young age of 23. The number of youth and young adults that pass away from Sudden Cardiac Arrest is staggering. 1 in 300 children under the age of 25 are at risk for Sudden Cardiac Death. One student athlete dies every 3 days because of SCA. The annual incidence of Sudden Cardiac Death is 8 times higher than the death toll from breast cancer. Together WE CAN and WILL change these statistics and save young lives!

We need volunteers to help with fundraising events and to serve on our board of directors.
