SADS 20th Anniversary Logo

Welcome to SADS Connect! 

Hello SADS Connect Members!

It is summer and we hope you are all enjoying your summer vacations!  This summer the SADS Foundation is running a POSTER DESIGN CONTEST!  We would like to create a new poster that kids can take to their schools to raise awareness and we want your help!

Youth Poster Contest The poster theme is "Did you know kids with SADS can do... this?"  And we need your great ideas.  The winner of the contest will have their artwork turned into an actual SADS Foundation poster that will go to school all over the country, as well as a gift card.

The winner will be announced at the SADS International Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah October 12, 13, 14.  (You don't have to be present to win, but you won't want to miss out on the fun-packed kids track at this conference!)

Speaking of the conference...

This year we will have a bigger, better, action packed SADS Connect Youth Track!

This is a great opportunity to meet other kids who are living with SADS conditions, and their brothers and sisters.  We have lots of activities, arts and crafts, outside adventures, conversations, and information sessions about SADS conditions planned.  Expect to get all of your questions answered, and have fun at the same time!

Last year kids made great friendships and had an amazing time, and this year will be even better. Registration is 50% off now through September 1st--we hope you can make it! 

Have you heard about Flat Bob?

Flat Bob is the new SADS Mascot and he wants to hang out with you this summer!  Flat Bob is a great way to get out in your community and raise awareness about SADS conditions!  Take him out with you to the pool, or the pakr, or to summer school, and take a picture of yourself with him.  If someone asks you about who Flat Bob is, be sure to tell them about the warning signs for SADS conditions- and maybe you could save a life!  The more people know about the warning signs- the more people are saved!
