Helping to Keep Hearts Healthy!
Good cheer and holiday giving are in the air and every donation made to Racing Hearts this season will go to provide life-saving AEDs here locally. In fact, thanks to the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors, your donation may be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $500,000!
Onsite AEDs are a simple, proactive solution that can help save a loved one's life in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest or for when a 'silent' medical problem gets triggered.
Take the story of Carlo Cooney - who at age 9 was saved with the help of a nearby AED when he suffered an episode from a heart condition that had been previously undetected. Had Carlo's episode occured on a playing field or some other place without a defibrillator present, the outcome might have been very different. "We are overjoyed that Carlo is alive today because of the quick and effective work from the camp's staff, his teachers and that there was an AED onsite."

Thnk you to all of our donors who have made Racing Hearts mission possible! We're looking forward to a bright and healthy 2016 for you, for those you love, and for all our Racing Hearts families.
Remember that donations of any size are greatly appreciated. Donate Here!
Imagine all youth and adults surviving a sudden cardiac arrest just like Carlo!
