Reviews for Racing Hearts
The AED info signs are eye catching and it contains easy to understand information. They make using an AED "Not so scary after all".
The Racing Hearts team is committed to their mission of Saving Lives with AED's. They have been an outstanding organization to work with. Fun group of people, very inclusive and focused. I am making new friends for life.
Thank you very much Stephanie! Your dedication and service is remarkable! We would love to have you again for future editions of the Race for Literacy. Thank you for doing this!
Great people and a great cause! AED awareness and placement.
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!
This is a great non profit! Everyone is very energetic and excited. I thoroughly enjoyed volunteering with this organization. The message they are trying to send is very important.
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.
This organization offers incredible bang-for-your-buck, pairing top-notch expertise and know-how with little/no bureaucracy. Racing Hearts is truly all about the mission--saving lives with AEDs--and their results prove it.
Stephanie is a walking encyclopedia about AEDs and puts endless effort into furthering this important cause.
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!
