Live Like Max

Posted By: Brianna Canedo (August 29, 2016)
LIVELIKEMAX is a non profit organization ran by the Pardington family in memory of their son Max. Max was normal teenager who didn't know he had a heart condition, and suddenly passed away from an enlarged heart after working out. Like so many others his life could have been saved if he had an ekg test but a sports physical didn't require it so he never had one. This charity raises money to provide children in high school ekg tests for free as well as provide defibrillators to schools for emergency situations. They are also trying to make it required to have an ekg test to play a sport since that would have saved Max's life.Max was an amazing person who was full of life, adventure, smart, and a great sense of humor. Live like Max is trying to make a difference, save lives, and families from happened to them.
