Cardiac Screening Event

To all youth hockey players, plus family and friends ages 12-22,

The Greg Holthaus Memorial Fund is pleased to announce their 3rd annual cardiac screening event on July 11 & 12, 2022 at Centene Community Ice Center.

Spots are limited to 120 time slots. Waitlist available when fully booked.

Cost is $34 for the screening of the heart.

#34 in honor of Greg Holthaus's Baseball Number

The rest of the financial cost is supplemented by the nonprofit Greg Holthaus Memorial Fund.

This includes a 2D Echo and an ECG of the heart by a licensed sonographer. Images are read by pediatric and general cardiologists to look for any possible heart abnormalities.

To pre-register go to:


Gift Basket Raffle opportunities in the lobby at Centene Community Ice Center on July 11 & 12 from 8am-4pm. 100% of the proceeds will go towards funding future cardiac screenings, life saving equipment (such as AED machines that are donated to local organizations and businesses), and cardiac arrest training (such as CPR classes).

Greg Holthaus, from Highland, IL, passed away at the age of 18 from sudden cardiac arrest. Mark and Gail Holthaus, Greg's parents, created the nonprofit Greg Holthaus Memorial Fund to help youths have their heart screened for abnormalities. If Greg had his heart screened for abnormalities, it could have possibly saved his life.
