This site and our mission are dedicated to Wes (1994-2011)

Wes had a love for life and for the “game” that was infectious. His enthusiasm was inspiring. He was truly happy playing any sport he could. He was often heard asking his mom for a little more time to play “Just One More Game”. Wes was taken from us far too early. While we don’t believe that this was his destiny, we will make sure his legacy will be carried on for many years to come. We are going to work with the same enthusiasm, drive and love he had every day to honor him and other children lost to SCA providing others a chance at “Just One More Game.”

 Public Act 388 of 2016.

It was signed into law on Dec. 28 and will take effect at the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year.  This bill would add CPR instruction and AED training to the existing health education content standards for schools in Michigan.
