Review for Racing Hearts, Palo Alto, CA, USA
This organization is driven literally and figuratively from the heart. The founder and leader, Stephanie Martinson, had experienced years of heart issues and is driven to make our community more safe. Racing Hearts is saving lives by getting our government, local officials and businesses to install AED devices where needed -- including in counties police cars. The work doesn't stop there, as Racing Hearts educates on proper use and build a community of advocates for this important cause. Over 90% of Santa Clara schools now have AEDs due to work of Racing Hearts. Stephanie was awarded 2018 Woman of the Year for District 18 by Senator Jerry Hill. This organization knows how to partner with local community to make a difference.
