Visitor Restrictions Update: Because flu & RSV cases are on the rise, starting November 16, children 12 and younger are restricted from visiting hospitals, certain inpatient facilities, and all emergency departments. Learn more.

 Due to ongoing concerns about coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), we've decided to cancel this year's Heart of a Champion Day events.

 We know this is a disappointment, but the health and safety of our student-athletes, volunteers and communities is our top priority. And we all
 need to do whatever we can to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time. We'll reach out to
 those involved when we have further updates. If you need non-emergency care in the meantime, please contact your primary care doctor's office
 or start one of our virtual care options.

Thank you for your interest in the Heart of a Champion Day program. Below you will find information related to the 2020 events schedule and registration.

"This is really different," said Olympic student Nick Pelletier. "It is pretty cool to see your heart on the computer screen. This is so important, so you can know if anything bad is going on in there."
