Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our children get theirs eyes and ears checked in school. What about their hearts? Sudden cardiac arrest takes the lives of thousands of children every year. It is the #1 cause of death of student athletes. We raise awareness, provide free heart screenings and promote the availability of AEDs in an effort to prevent sudden cardiac arrest and death in children.

Population(s) Served

Sudden death is a great way to decide a hockey game. It is a terrible way to lose a teammate. Every time the Philadelphia Flyers end a game with a sudden death period, we'll donate an AED device to a local youth facility.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

HeartBytes is a digital cardiac registry of seemingly healthy kids that provides qualified researchers with free access to data. The data is crowdsourced from organizations engaged in youth heart screenings. The data contains medical and family history, vitals, and ECG, and in some instances an echocardiogram.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents

Division I Male Basketball players are at the greatest risk of sudden cardiac arrest. During college basketball season, we visit the NCAA teams in Philadelphia, educate the fans during a timeout and select a youth facility that receives an AED device.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Saving a life is serious. Learning how to do it doesn't have to be. The Jukebox teaches students how to perform chest compressions using music and balls.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Simon's Heart wishes to change the standard of care so that every child receives a heart screening.

Simon's Heart will screen hearts to DETECT the conditions before they cause harm. It will PROTECT by providing AED devices and promoting CPR. It will continue to innovate by leveraging its national cardiac registry of seemingly healthy kids and its AED crowdfunding site.

Simon's Heart possesses expertise in the subject matter and experience in marketing and operations. These assets make Simon's Heart very effective at raising awareness and providing life saving services.

Simon's Heart has provided over 18,400 free heart screenings; 129 have discovered potentially-fatal heart conditions. We authored the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Act, the first of its kind, which has now been passed in sixteen states. That act has educated over 1 million coaches.

Through our GotAED platform, we have placed over 160 AED devices where kids learn and play. We have spread the knowledge of CPR to thousands of youth through our CPR Jukebox.

We have produced PSAs with professional athletes and collegiate coaches to spread awareness of Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

Simon's Heart has a sports cardiology fellow and it has developed HeartBytes, a digital registry to gather data and provide it to researchers, free of charge.
