SCA Survivor and H.S. Basketball Star Returns to the Court

MINNEAPOLIS--Almost exactly a year after collapsing on the court with cardiac arrest, Perham (Minn.) High basketball star Zach Gabbard made an emotional return to compete in his first varsity basketball game of the 2011-12 season.

As noted by the Minneapolis Star Tribune and the Fargo-Moorhead Forum, Gabbard was brought in during the closing minutes of Perham's 81-23 walloping of Park Rapids (Minn.) High on Tuesday, earning his first game action since collapsing on court during a game against Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton (Minn.) High in early 2011.

"There was a standing ovation from both crowds," Perham coach Dave Cresap told the Forum. "It was awesome. My emotions were scared, because I am responsible for him being out there, but I was also filled with joy."

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Foundation is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest. The vision of the SCA Foundation is to increase awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and influence attitudinal and behavioral changes that will reduce mortality and morbidity from SCA.
