College and High School Screenings
Sudden Cardiac Arrest is the leading cause of death in young athletes in the US. The best way to detect these heart conditions is through a heart screening using an EKG (Electrocardiogram). An EKG screening analyzes the electrical signals of the heart and is not typically provided at a youth’s annual physical.
The Ryan Lopynski Big Heart Foundation with the support of local cardiologists, technicians from fire and rescue or medical facilities, and other volunteers will conduct FREE ON-SITE heart screenings. They are provided for students from ages 12-26 years of age, and the results are reviewed on site by local cardiologists.

For appointments, please REGISTER
PLEASE NOTE: You must be between 12-26 years of age to sign up for a screening time slot.
Although screenings are always offered free of charge, members of the public who can afford payment are encouraged to make a donation. Donations are used to help defer screening costs and enable The Ryan Lopynski Big Heart Foundation to provide future screenings in Fairfax County.
We would appreciate your support!
