On February 9, 2017, University High School varsity basketball player Kai Bates-Diop suffered from cardiac arrest during basketball practice. Kai is alive today after being revived by the U-High athletic training staff. Their use of CPR and an AED saved his life.

The Bates family wants to honor this lifesaving event by establishing a fund to help schools purchase AEDs. U-High is selling t-shirts to kick off this fundraising campaign.

Shirts are $10 each and are available in unisex sizes S, M, L, XL, and XXL. Shirts are on sale from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm in the U-High Activities Office Friday, February 24. Any remaining shirts will be sold at the February 24 U-High boys basketball game.
