Steve Cochran's WGN Radio show had Alane Church, with Max Schewitz Foundation, on the show as the MVPP last week. She talked about the foundation's efforts to get kids an EKG and the 3rd Annual Josh Church Fundraiser coming up on Nov. 17 from 4-7:30 p.m. at The Chocolate Factory. Click here to purchase tickets! All proceeds will benefit the Max Schewitz Foundation.
Volunteers are the backbone of our foundation as we rely on adult volunteers as our primary labor source for providing HeartSmart EKG. No medical knowledge is required to volunteer. You will be trained and supervised by our medical staff. Believe it or not, it is easy and fun!
Please consider helping us at the following schools:
Two Vernon Hills High School students selected Alane Church for their Difference Maker video project. Alane Church did not know as a parent about the importance of cardiac screening for her healthy kids. She started the Josh Church Foundation after her son, Josh, died from a hidden heart condition at the age of 17. She works with the Max Schewitz Foundation to pass on her knowledge and inform high school students about the need for all young adults to receive a simple and painless EKG at their school's HeartSmart Cardiac Screening. Great job, students!
The District 128 AP History Class had an assignment to create video about a nonprofit in the community making a difference. We're pleased to share the video two students created about The Foundation. Congrats students on a job well done!
