Quote of the Week:

"Watching the news every night, it astounds me how many kids die all of a sudden on the courts or field.  These are senseless deaths, they can be prevented.  When I heard that the Max Schewitz Foundation is coming to Deerfield High School on Jan. 28th for FREE EKG screening of the students, I was relieved.  I immediately registered my child for the testing.  A two minute non invasive test CAN save lives.  Why wouldn't every parent register their child for this test.  Thank you Max Schewitz Foundation for providing this priceless service!!!" - Sharon Krengel, Parent Volunteer Coordinator, Deerfield High School

Thanks to all the volunteers who helped this fall at Grayslake Central, Glenbrook North, Lake Forest, Lakes Community, and Libertyville high schools
