Aidan's Heart partnered with our organization, Marsh Creek Eagles, as we looked to expand our safety program. Christy and her team provided hands-on training for AED & CPR to our Coaches, players & parents. The feedback I received from everyone that attended was overwhelmingly positive. We can't thank Aidan's Heart enough!

My organization, Energage, and our employees have been involved with Aidan's Heart Foundation for two years now, through sponsorship with their annual 5K. They are so involved in the local community to promote their mission of raising awareness and education about sudden cardiac arrest in children. The 5K is just one example of they they involve the local community and businesses in a mission that is so important, but often not talked about.

I have been with Aidan's Heart Foundation from the beginning. My business has sponsored events, my whole family has volunteered at events, and I have helped plan an organize events. My favorite moments with this organization are when I see the community response. At a 5K event a mom came to me and shared that her daughter was screened at one of our heart screenings and a condition was found that the family had no idea existed. Because of Aidan's Heart Foundation this young lady is being monitored and this family can now manage her condition, avoiding possible sudden cardiac arrest. At another event we had visitors from almost 2 hours away: a fire department who didn't get enough funding for all their equipment applied to AHF and were granted an AED for their fire truck. They were so grateful for the donation.
I continue to volunteer and continue to donate my time as a board member because I'm excited about the next event and the next person whose life will be saved because of Aidan's Heart Foundation.

For the past few years, I've worked with Aidan's Heart Foundation to help promote the awareness of heart health. In partnership with my school, my art classes create artwork of their service work to help Aidan's Heart. This year they create postcards and I was thrilled that everyone at Aidan's Heart Foundation was able to print sets of postcards as a fundraiser! AHF is always willing to work with everyone in the community to find ways to promote the work of their amazing foundation to help more children and create an awareness for heart health!!!

Aidan's Heart Foundation has made a significant difference in not only the community, but at the state level with their advocacy to protect young hearts. They are truly saving lives by offering free heart screenings for kids, and supplying parks and schools with AEDs. They have gone even further by making sure that kids in the Downingtown School District learn CPR when they pass through the sixth grade center. They are literally creating thousands of heart heroes who will be prepared to help save lives, and have single handedly educated our entire community about sudden cardiac arrest in an effort to prevent our kids from leaving us too soon.

I have worked with Aidan’s Heart Foundation for the past several years, first as a volunteer and now as a member of the Board of Directors. This has given me two unique experiences with AHF, and I’m delighted and proud to say that both experiences have been overwhelmingly positive. The Silva family experienced unthinkable tragedy in 2010 when 7-year-old Aidan suffered sudden cardiac arrest. The sadness, despair and anger that they no doubt experienced was channeled into creating this wonderful, caring and impactful organization. AHF is dedicated to educating the public about how to prevent sudden cardiac arrest through Pennsylvania legislation, informative outreach and free pediatric heart screenings. Furthering the mission, AHF has taught thousands how to perform CPR and use an AED, and has even donated dozens of AEDs to local communities. The public, especially our children, are much safer thanks to Aidan’s Heart Foundation!

We wanted to have donations made to Aidan’s Heart in liu of flowers when my dad passed. I contacted the foundation and they had a drop down option there in a couple of hours and everyone has told me how happy they are to donate and how easy the process was. This is a fantastic organization. I am honored to be able to support them.

Since the first time I was introduced to Christy and her team, it was evident that this is an organization with a purpose and mission. It has been wonderful to watch the momentum of Aidan's Heart continue to grow. The enthusiasm that the children who are learning CPR and how to use the Heart Stimulation equipment is amazing. Aidan's Heart Foundation is one organization that surely gives back to the community where we live, play and raise our families.
