We would be delighted if you could join us on Monday, October 2nd, 2023, for a golf day as we honor our 2nd Annual Golf Fundraiser for Bailey’s Heart and Soul Foundation. As the mother and founder of the foundation, I understand the heart-wrenching and tragic experience of losing a child. In light of Bailey’s passing, I established Bailey’s Heart and Soul Foundation, which aims to raise funds to purchase AEDS for easy accessibility at various Harford County locations and surrounding communities. This year, the foundation has also launched a service scholarship for graduating seniors who live in the county and embody Bailey’s unique characteristics of community service, athletics, and academic accomplishments.
We would be grateful if you could join us for a golf day to help raise awareness and prevent sudden cardiac arrest.
Register now by scanning the QR code. Additionally, we have sponsorship levels and early bird options available.
Welcome To Bailey's Heart And Soul Foundation
What Brought Us Here
Bailey died suddenly of cardiac arrest after an organized track and field event on May 12th, 2021. Bailey was an avid athlete who played football, basketball, and ran track. Bailey’s premature death motivated us to develop an organization to give knowledge to our community on how to respond to cardiac emergencies.
What Brought Us Here
Bailey was diagnosed with Wolf Parkinson’s White Syndrome (WPW) at an early age. Our goal is to bring awareness to WPW as this syndrome can cause cardiac arrhythmias and sudden death.
Wolf Parkinson’s White Syndrome (WPW) is a condition in which an extra electrical pathway in the heart causes a rapid heartbeat. The extra electrical pathway in WPW appears between the heart’s upper and lower chambers which causes a rapid heartbeat. WPW syndrome is usually present at birth. Some common symptoms of WPW syndrome include palpitation, dizziness, shortness of breath, fatigue, anxiety, chest pain, difficulty breathing, and or fainting
We are commited to saving that one life that would make a difference to a mother, father, brother, sister or friend.
How You Can Help
Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome is a condition in which episodes of fast heart rate (called tachycardia) occur because of an abnormal extra electrical pathway in the heart. People with WPW may experience skipped heart beats, dizziness, lightheadedness, and fainting, although some people with WPW have no symptoms. Treatments are available for those who do experience symptoms. The long-term outcome of people with WPW is excellent, especially when treatments are used to eliminate the abnormal electrical pathway.
Our goal is to make training available to all who are instrumental in monitoring and training these up-and-coming athletes in order to maximize their safety during these times of practice and promise.
Bailey’s Heart and Soul Foundation will recommend a more in-depth pre-participation examination that encompasses techniques that will minimize the risk of missing underlying cardiac disease that could potentially be fatal if that child participates in vigorous sports activities.
