Free Defibrillators!

4 Years ago we became involved in this very meaningful cause, the Shock Run. The mission;  to raise money for free defibrillators to offer the community.  

Each year about 1.1 million people in the United States have heart attacks, almost half of these people die. Coronary Artery Disease, which often results in heart attacks, is the leading killer of both men and women.

Many people could recover from heart attacks if they could get help faster. Of the people die from heart attacks, about half of them die within an hour of their first symptoms, and before they reach the hospital. When defibrillators are used after symptoms occur, they have been known to save many lives.
All proceeds from the St. Patty's Day Shock Run benefit a local home, company or organization in need of a defibrillator, to support our goal of saving lives

If you need one, or know of someone or an organization that needs one, please let us know!!

And, come dressed in green to get your free beer and eggs the morning of the run.  Over 500 runners are expected this year.
