BATON ROUGE - Dr. Steven Kelley stopped by 2une In Monday to talk about Jump Start Your Heart's 6th Annual Valentine Gala.

Jump Start Your Heart, Inc. is dedicated to decreasing sudden cardiac deaths in high school athletes in the Baton Rouge and surrounding areas. This is done through identifying abnormalities and detecting hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

This condition is the most common cause of sudden death in young athletes. Dr. Kelley says it affects 5-7% of the athletes that are screened.

This is the sixth year of the Valentine Gala. This year's event is on Saturday, February 8th from 7-11 pm at the Renaissance Hotel of Baton Rouge. There's a $75 donation to attend with dinner, drinks, and live music by "The Wendell Woods Band".

For tickets call (225) 751-8684 or visit the Jump Start Your Heart, Inc. website.
