The Hearts of Our Lions

The Zac Mago Foundation was established in memory of Zac Mago, an honor student and rising star on the John Glenn High School basketball team.  Zac passed away in July of 2018 when he laid down one afternoon to take a nap and tragically never woke back up.

Zac died from cardiopulmonary arrest due to an enlarged heart, and the foundation wants to provide information and preventive heart screenings to stop sudden cardiac arrest in teens.  Heart screenings are the only means to recognize ailments similar to what Zac unknowingly experienced.

These screenings take place the first Saturday of each month at the Walkerton Youth Center in Walkerton, IN.  To learn more about the mission of the foundation and to sign up to have a screening performed visit

Please consider this gracious offer from the foundation to protect our young Lions.  A few minutes to sign up for a screening could prevent this tragedy from occurring in Bremen.  Rest in complete peace Zac.  Thank you to Zac’s mom for her loving and endless work to make this service available to the youth of our area.
