Benefit Dinner & Texas Hold'em Poker Tournament

Please join us for the 5th Annual “Race to Keep Hearts Beating” Benefit Dinner &Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament scheduled for September 11, 2015 at the Folsom Community Center.  This event is no ordinary fund raiser.  Every fund raising event in Folsom is for a good cause, but “Race to Keep Hearts Beating” stands out because as the name implies, it is about saving lives.  Every year in the United States, 295,000 Americans die suddenly and unexpectedly due to cardiac arrhythmias.  Almost 4,000 of them are young people under the age of 35.  Each year, 1 in 200,000 high school athletes in the U.S. will die suddenly due to SADS, most without any prior symptoms.   In 2010, Race Salazar, a young athlete that grew up and played sports throughout his life right here in Folsom suffered a life-ending heart arrhythmia in his sleep during his freshman year of college at UNLV.     Race’s parents know that SADS prevention begins with education.  This will be the 5th year they are partnering with the Folsom Athletic Association to raise public awareness of how to recognize the warning signs and symptoms of SADS and help save lives.    Proceeds from this event will go to support the Folsom Athletic Association and the nearly 10,000 Folsom children who participate in 15 youth sports leagues each year. The FAA Race M. Salazar Memorial Scholarships awarded annually at Folsom and Vista Del Lago High Schools and the SADS National Foundation.  We thank you for supporting this event in past years and look forward to successful event in 2015!
