The personnel associated with Racing Hearts were personable and professional throughout the experience. They assessed the needs of our organization and met our objectives. The AED and accompanying equipment was top notch and relevant to our needs including: the AED device, personal protective equipment and protective carry case,. Thank you Racing Hearts.

Racing Hearts is taking a proactive approach for making our community safer by placing AEDs in the communities. Stephanie has made numerous connections with the right people to raise funds for the Santa Clara County Supervisors matching AED grant program that is getting started January 2016. Racing Hearts are making the dream come true of having AEDs as common as fire extinguishers.

Racing Hearts is taking a proactive approach to Sudden Cardiac Arrest. The Spot The Box campaign was a way for the community to look and identify where AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) are located around the community. This is very valuable data/information for everyone because...... MINUTES MATTER when someone's heart stops beating.

Thank you Racing Hearts for spreading the word that while CPR is important, it is the shock from an AED that can get someone's heart beating again!!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The AED info signs are eye catching and it contains easy to understand information. They make using an AED "Not so scary after all".

I have had a wonderful experience volunteering with the amazing Racing Hearts organization over the last year, and through them I have learned so much about the importance of AEDs in the community. Racing Hearts approaches this issue on many fronts, including leveraging funds to place AEDs, raising community awareness of AEDs through their AEDspotter app, and lending AEDs to community sports events. Their mission couldn't be more important (saving lives!), and I'm proud to call myself a supporter!

I recently volunteered for an event held by Racing Hearts to raise money for heart research at Stanford University and it was such a positive experience. They're a well run non-profit working hard to raise the visibility and the availability of AEDs.
