Why donate to the 2019 Racing Hearts 5k/10k? 

Our primary goal this year is to purchase life saving heart defibrillators (AEDs) and place them in all East Palo Alto Patrol Cars.  When time is critical, our first responders need access to these devices.  

About the Racing Hearts organization: 

 - We are a California nonprofit based out of the San Francisco Bay Area

 - To date we have placed over 800 AEDs increasing the heart safety of over 1.7M people

 - To date we have documented 8 AED saves - impacting the lives of their family, loved ones and community! 

 - Pioneered CA Senate Bill SB 658, signed by Governor Brown September 2015

 - Pioneered CA Senate Bill 1397, signed by Governor Brown September 2018

Racing Hearts focuses our mission with low income underserved populations as studies have shown this distinction correlates with higher obesity and less consistent access to healthcare. 

Why heart health matters:  

Sudden Cardiac Arrest can strike anyone at anytime.  According to the American Red Cross, about 350,000 Americans die of SCA each year, that’s almost 800 American’s per day - one death nearly every two minutes. Help support education and access to life saving heart defibrillators (AEDs) and together we can see more lives saved and that everyone has a chance to live a full and active life.  

Please help us fundraise!
