(Tax ID: 45-5271941).
Racing Heart began the winter of 2012 as a grassroots idea—we want to ensure automated external defibrillators are ready and available all all high risk community locations to help save lives. We are proud to be partnering with local cities, schools, recreation and community centers, as well as with fitness and health organizations.
Racing Hearts is a proactive health and safety nonprofit which advocates and empowers access to saving lives. Our organizations goal is to increase the success rate of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) which has been unchanged since the 1960s at 5% but which can increase up to 80% with nearby life saving heart defibrillators. Nearby AEDs is such a simple solution to a huge medical problem because SCA can happen to anyone at anytime.
Racing Hearts strongly believes in following guidelines established through evidence-based research, which supports placing multiple AEDs at one site. We focus our mission with low-income underserved populations as studies have shown this distinction correlates with higher obesity and less access to healthcare.
