Sauers Cares 4th Annual Baci 5K Charity Race – Running to Support Simon’s Heart

Once called “The Best Little Run in Bucks County,” the Annual Baci 5K Charity Race is a family-friendly race through Peace Valley Park. This year, the event was on Sunday, May 21, 2023 at 9:00am. With all of the proceeds from the event, Sauers Cares will donate digital tablets to support of Simon’s Heart Screenings.

Simon’s Heart Screenings

Each year, Simon’s Heart collaborates with local schools and teams to offer comprehensive heart screenings for students and student athletes. Students review family history and receive medical screenings, like vitals checks, auscultation to listen to their hearts, and electrocardiograms. At each station, volunteers and medical professionals use digital tablets to safely collect confidential data. This process detects potential heart disease and provides a full heart health report to each student.

Additionally, Simon’s Heart volunteers show students where to find the nearest AED and how to use it. They also rely on the CPR Jukebox to help students learn what to do in the face of a crisis. Students practice with dodgeballs and a CPR mannequin. Plus, they enjoy a playlist of the perfect songs for hitting the 100-120 beats per minute for ideal chest compressions! Through this exercise, students gain the confidence to help a teammate or friend survive.

Thank You

Finally, we would like to thank everyone who came out for this event. With your energetic support, Simon’s Heart will continue to protect kids and teens with critical heart screenings.
