Why do you volunteer?

Volunteer and make a difference: Priceless. - C.M.

I love sports with a passion and want to see kids enjoy themselves and know that their hearts are healthy! - A.B.

I played sports growing up and still do. I lost a best friends mother to SCD [sudden cardiac death]. - Z.P.

I think prevention and community education are really important. I also like having an opportunity to meet other volunteers who care about these causes. - G.G.

I love giving back to the community, and being able to do this outside my own community is something that I find to be quite exciting.I have always enjoyed participating in community-based health fairs, and I would like to gain a more hands-on experience. - C.B.

When I was in high school, I lost a friend to undiagnosed HOCM [hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy]. He passed while playing football. - E.J.

I love working with the kids and I have helped with Heart Hype for the past couple of years. - O.G.

I would like to give back to the community. - K.D.

There is nothing better than giving back to the community and providing life saving education. That's what nursing is all about. - H.R.

I am a nurse and it is my duty to help and to do what I can to make sure everyone understand their bodies and to help them live a healthy life style. - S.D.

My grandfather died at 55 from a now-treatable condition, easily seen on EKG. This screening is investing in our youth. - S.F.

I feel as a nursing student that I should put the skills I have learned so far to good use and help others. - S.M.

I love public service through volunteering and I also love sports very much. - E.A.

I'm a long-time athlete, and growing up it seemed, sadly, we would lose a kid after a game or practice every year. And the same thing would always be said, "How could this happen?" More awareness needs to be be brought to the forefront. - C.R.

I come from a family inflicted with heart disease. I have been working with patients recovering from heart disease for four years, and when it comes to volunttering, I love being close to the heart. - R.B.

I had two close friends in college who collapsed and died while playing basketball. Both had undiagnosed cardiac problems: one had Marfans Syndrome and the other had hypertrophic cardiac myopathy. - K.L.

Due to atrial tachycardia, I had two heart caths while swimming in college. Luckily, treatment was in time. I feel very strongly about proper cardiac screeening in athletes. I was one of the lucky ones. I have also recently been diagnosed with an ascending aortic aneurysm. I want to be more involved / volunteer with cardiac issues, screenings and preventions. - W.E.

My grandpa and my father died of heart attacks. - H.T.

I'm trying something new! - A.P.
