Cardiac Screening Day @ KSU Alumni Center
Sep 29 all-day

The Anthony Bates Foundation is coming back to Kansas in a big way!  On Sunday, September 29th we will be hosting our 13thannual Cardiac Screening Day at the K-State Alumni Center in Manhattan, KS.  Attached is our flyer and below, a link to our PSA video with Coach Bill Snyder promoting our program.  Please help us spread the word by watching our video, adding it to your website (if you have one) and sharing the flyer with your friends, too!

The screening is open to youth 12 & up & their families.  Even adults are eligible to have a heart test.  The program is FREE but we do ask for a nominal $20 suggested donation to keep the program going and support our efforts year round.  Your help in sharing the word with your friends, family & co-workers would be greatly appreciated.
Appointments are highly recommended.  We anticipate a full house and would like to accommodate everyone as quickly and smoothly as possible.  Below is the link to set up appointments:
