Kieran Popp Memorial Scholarship

The Kieran Popp Memorial Scholarship is dedicated to raising awareness about undiagnosed/underdiagnosed heart conditions and Sudden Cardiac Arrest in young adults. Students who apply for the Kieran Popp Memorial Scholarship read about Kieran’s Story, which empathizes the importance of heart health. Students applying for the scholarship also write an essay about how to become proactive about their heart health and how they will give back to the community.

Heart Awareness Month

February is Heart Awareness Month and we host several events including The Craft Night at Corks and Crafts, an event that brings together friends of KAP for the Heart for a night of drawing, painting and crafting for the Heart. And KAP for the Heart Music Bingo, a fun-filled and fast-paced take on traditional bingo! Players are given a bingo card where traditional bingo numbers have been replaced with song names, music titles or both!

Annual Spring for the Heart Benefit

The Spring for the Heart Benefit Dinner is an annual fundraising event that benefits the Kieran Popp Memorial Scholarship. The fun for a cause night includes dinner catered by local restaurants, music, photography, door prize giveaways, silent auction, Monte Carlo and raffle prizes.
