Fall 2013

What an amazing 2013! Because of your help and support, we continue to make great strides in our mission of helping to save lives with AEDs.

To date, Racing Hearts has completed the following:

  • Increased the safety of over 47,000 athletes with our AED lending program.

  • Provided education about life saving heart defibrillators. 

  • Created our first animated video about CPR/AED (created by a high school student, A study published in the March 8, 2013 issue of Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes showed that people who view a CPR instructional video are significantly more likely to attempt life-saving resuscitation). 

  • Featured on our local KTVU Channel 2 news - due to a tweet about Racing Hearts from the Fire Chief in Howard County Maryland. View the broadcast.

  • Awarded as a 2013 Top Rated nonprofit from GreatNonprofits! Thank you to our fans!  Read our great reviews and add your story!

  • Help us find AEDs. We will be launching our crowdsourcing AEDSpotter app Winter 2014 to help locate and map AEDs in our community.  Look for our "Spot the Box" campaign. 

  • Join us for the First Annual Racing Hearts 5K/10K walk/run.
