PROTECTING OUR YOUTH
OUR MISSION

Strive for Life is a non-profit organization that supports the activities that protect children and young adults from heart conditions that can impact their overall health, athletic performance or in some cases cause sudden death.

Strive for Life Foundation’s current strategy is to sponsor heart screenings for youth ages 8 to 18. This sponsorship includes working with the families in need with the goal to help provide financial assistance that helps offset the cost of testing.

In order to extend participation to all families, we provide grants based on documented financial need-based guidelines. Strive for Life is committed to serving people regardless of their ability to pay.

“ATS was great from start to finish in the services they provided. From our initial meeting and the planning process, David and his staff were easy to work with. Before and after the event, we received nothing but positive feedback from the parents of our student-athletes. Being able to offer these services at a reasonable price was a big selling point for our parents. I would 100% recommend this service to any of my colleagues.”

“I wanted to send a note about my daughter Grace. She had open-heart surgery to fix a half-dollar-size hole in her heart at Children’s Mercy. Every surgeon and cardiologist we talked to said she needed a transplant in 4 to 5 years because of the damage done to her heart by the hole. Your test saved her life, and we are forever grateful. We will be advocates of this testing continuing. If there is anything we can do to help, please let us know.”

I enjoy working with David and Eric from ATS. The service they provide is necessary, credible, and, to be honest, lifesaving. ATS performs these simple and non invasive tests in a secure and stress free manner at a fraction of the cost of having them done through your doctor. And what you get in return is a level of peace of mind that you can’t put a price tag on. I believe this to be a service that every school in America should take advantage of.

I brought my three children to your ATS HeartCheck on January 9, 2018. The tests detected an ASD in my 10 year-old daughter’s heart.  Due to the ATS Heart Check testing, we were able to catch the ASD early enough, and Children’s Mercy Hospital performed a surgical procedure too implant a device to repair the hole in her heart.  My daughter is doing great! As I’ve told our family and friends, who are now scheduling their children for the screening, for 30 minutes and the cost of a pair of good running shoes, the testing is well worth it!
