Villa SPORTS  2- 4 PM  Heart Screening / CPR Training  ( does not include certification )
 
 
October is Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness month . Sudden Cardiac Arrest is the number 1 killer on school campuses and the #2 cause of death in America.  Free heart screenings and CPR training on October 27th.
We need increased awareness of the risks, warning signs, and how to respond to a cardiac emergency
If you need  further info contact  at Ruqayya Gibson  at 281-914-2082 or ruqayyagibson.yahoo.com
 
 
Also Please Contact : if you want to Volunteer or Sponsor the event 
 
 

Sudden Cardiac Arrest kills over 7,000 youth and over 350,000 people each year.  It is the leading cause of death on school campuses. Research shows that 1 in 300 youth have an undetected heart condition. In many cases, Sudden Cardiac Arrest  strikes with no obvious symptoms.  A recent study by the American Heart Association showed that family history and physical examinations alone miss youth at risk for Sudden Cardiac Arrest. The standard sports physical does not adequately protect youth from the risk of SCA because the issues with the heart that can lead to Sudden Cardiac Arrest are not heard with the stethoscope.  An EKG can detect most conditions that lead to SCA.

 

Ms. Gibson lost her son on March 12,2019 to Sudden Cardiac Arrest. She describes her son as s a loving, giving young man who always put others
first.  He was a healthy athlete who had participated in sports since the age of 5 and passed his sports physicals every year with no issues. 
 Damani’s heart suddenly stopped beating with no symptoms.  Ms. Gibson has sought to raise awareness and provide
resources to increase the chances of survival youth.

As a gifted athlete turned coach , Ms. Gibson has led her team to win 5 consecutive District and Regional championships and 4 consecutive State top 3 team finishes.

Ms. Gibson’s honors include being inducted on the Cy-Fair ISD Wall Of Fame, the 2014 Texas Track Coach of The Year, a Brooks Inspiring Coach, and 2018 Vype Magazine Coach of The Year. 

 

Ms. Gibson is offering EKG screening and CPR Training at Villa Sports on Thursday October 17 from  2- 4 PM

Rise Against Hunger
 
Sunday 5/19 Bear Creek-Copperfield Rotary sponsored a 'Rise Against Hunger' in partnership with Cornerstone Methodist Church on West Road. The intent was provide meals to be earmarked for Venezuelan refugees who have been forced to flee into Columbia. This contribution hopefully will meet an immediate need for people in very dire circumstances and will truly be an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people in need.
We had multiple Rotary clubs join us including Waller Rotary, Cinco Ranch Rotary, Cy-Woods and Langham Creek Rotary Interact clubs and the wonderful Cornerstone church community. All in all we 100+ folks helping to make this project a super success. They packaged 20,000 meals between 2 pm and 4 pm. Each package will supply six meals. If I've missed anyone I apologize but Bear Creek-Copperfield send our many thanks to all who made this a success.
 
 
.Bear Creek-Copperfield delivered toy Houston Fire Department Station 90 for Operation Stocking Stuffer. Thank you Laura Kelly and Paula Allen for setting this up and  thanks for the help from the club members donation toys to make this a success.

Koedi Nealy, Founder Of Graced Ministry visited our club. They are collecting pennies and convincing friends, family, and anyone who will listen to collect pennies and put them to good use has grown into the organization of Graced Ministry.  So far, Graced Ministry has sent students to camps, created homeless bags, sponsored a child through World Vision, and sent money to help orphans in Kenya.  This was a dream of Koedi since she was seven years old.

Liz Bear with Vita Living visited us at our weekly noon Rotary meeting.  She informed us they provide long-term comprehensive care and support for adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).  They are a Houston-based nonprofit organization and have been in service since 1982.  Vita Living offers three vital core programs for individuals with IDD: group residences in Houston-area neighborhoods, a centrally located day center, and case management across seven counties. Across Texas, an estimated 75,000 individuals with IDD wait up to 14 years for a residential slot. Vita Living’s experienced and caring staff save lives and renew hope on a daily basis for this greatly under served and vulnerable population. Thank you Liz for visiting with us today.

Bear Creek-Copperfield Rotary President Bob Meek and Past President Jim Trebes presented students at Cardiff Middle School today with Kindle Fire Tablets. Students that met or exceeded the required number of books assigned by their teachers were eligible for the drawing.  It was exciting to see their faces when they received the tablets.  Congratulation Colts for a job well done.
 
Our club has a Education Enhancement program for three Middle Schools in our area. Watkins Middle School, being one of the schools we support expressed their thank you with a card signed by the students. We present by a drawing one student in each of the three grades a Kindle Reader  to reward for  meeting or exceed the requirements set by the school's reading program. Because reading is the heart of education, it prepares students for being able to excel their education and to prepare them for life after school. Today Julie Cantu and Callie Moczygemba visited our club to let us know how they use the Kindles and the excitement it bring to the kids in their school.
