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.

Our club, Almaden Soccer, caters to about 2000 kids in our community, thru our recreational and competitive soccer programs. This past new year we held our inaugural New Years Day 5k/10k run/walk, where we had participants from age 4 through 84! Stephanie reached out to us and asked if we would like to use their AEDs on site during the race, in case of any emergencies. We of course accepted her generous offer, and took delivery of two AEDs, which were placed on the course during race day. Fortunately we did not need to use them, but had there been any unfortunate issues, we would have been ore than prepared, thanks to Racing Hearts!

I was involved in the start up of Racing Hearts but have not been involved directly for over a year. It has been amazing to see the impact Racing Hearts has had in our local communities; through advocacy multiple cities now have AEDs accessible in case of need. My daughter is a runner and it has been great to see Racing Heart partnering with dozens of races to provide life saving AEDs along the race courses. Stephanie and her board are committed and have high integrity. I appreciate all they have done to educate people and increase public safety.
