Simon's Fund is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to raising awareness about the conditions that lead to sudden cardiac arrest and death in young athletes and children.
Simon’s Fund was established in 2005 in memory of Simon, son of Phyllis and Darren Sudman. The organization provides free heart screenings to children, primarily in the Greater Philadelphia area. It also sponsors medical research projects, hosts awareness events, works with major medical institutions and promotes legislation. View our goals and initiatives to learn more. As a result of Simon’s Fund, over forty-five students have discovered unknown, potentially-fatal heart conditions. Click here to read their stories.
The mission of the organization is to save a child’s life... and then another, by raising awareness of conditions that lead to sudden cardiac arrest and death.
