Sudden cardiac arrest is by far the leading cause of death among young healthy athletes. An AED can make the difference between life and death. Safe Sports applied for the grant to fill a specific gap: Although our schools provide AEDs, when Safe Sports athletic trainers provide sideline coverage at other events/schools there may not be an AED available. Thanks to Hopey's Heart Foundation for helping ensure our kids have the care they need when they need it!
