Help support 'Nick of Time'

Local screening for SCA to be held June 2

MANSON/CHELAN - Recently, Manson Chamber of Commerce members attended presentations by the “Nick of Time Foundation”, we highly recommend you consider supporting their efforts, financially or with in-kind donations that will directly affect our local students in grades 9th through 12th, on June 2.
“Nick of Time” is a foundation started in 2006 in honor of triathlete Nick Varrenti, who died of a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in 2004 at the age of 16. His mom Darla and Aunt Suzanne Apodaca's vision is to increase awareness regarding SCA and how it affects children and young adults and if detected early, medical procedures can remedy the problem. The Foundation's goal is to save lives through SCA education and awareness, formation of school/community emergency action plans that include CPR/AED (Automated External Defibrillator) training and EKG heart screening.
Lake Chelan Health Hospital Paramedic Ray Eickmeyer and local “Nick of Time” volunteer, Marti Wick are arranging a cardiac screening that will take place in Chelan on Friday, June 2. Manson and Entiat Schools will bring their 9th-12th graders to Chelan for screening. They hope to screen and train over 300 students. This event is staffed 100% with medical and civilian volunteers, utilizing local and seasoned west side volunteers. There are several opportunities to support “Nick of Time” with this event in Chelan on June 2. Make a financial contribution. Provide lodging (June 1-2), supply food for volunteers, or participate in the event on June 2.
For more information or make a financial or in-kind donation, contact Marti Wick at 425-308-3924 or email
