Review for Racing Hearts, Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Nonprofits aimed at addressing a health care need often face the challenge of educating donors using abstractions in how their mission serves the public. Racing Hearts provides a concrete and immediate service: distributing automated external defibrillators (AEDs) into the community for use by bystanders who witness cardiac arrest. I've been in the position of doing CPR for the long minutes it took for paramedics to arrive, when an available AED could have made the resuscitation more efficient and effective. I got involved in the first Racing Hearts run, an annual event I look forward to. I am pleased to see how the event has grown and been embraced by the community, and especially pleased to see attendance by so many families who have had loved ones saved by the use of AEDs.
