The annual Heartbeats & Heroes gala provides a beautiful evening out with friends, recognizes those making an impact in adolescent cardiology initiatives, and raises the critical funds needed to continue the programs of Championship Hearts Foundation.

Championship Hearts Foundation provides free heart screenings for active teens.  Proceeds of Heartbeats & Heroes will enable Championship Hearts Foundation to provide free heart screenings across Texas and to continue research to learn more about sudden cardiac arrest in the adolescent population.

We are pleased to announce our 2020 honoree:

Matt Nader

Matt has served on the Board of Directors for Championship Hearts since 2012. His enthusiasm of sports and personal journey have fueled his life and personal mission to help "eliminate cardiac arrest in young athletes". Read Matt's story here
