Racing Hearts targets under-served communities and at risk areas where the greatest risk of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) exists. We strongly believe in following guidelines established through evidence based research which supports placing multiple AEDs in one site. AEDs are life saving heart defibrillators which along with CPR increases one's survival.
Your organization may be selected by the Racing Hearts Santa Clara County (SCC) AED oversight committee which meets approximately four times a year. Any organization who meets the criteria relative to high risk, low income and/or underserved populations can apply. This application is specific to the SCC matching 1:1 grant and funds may only be used within the Santa Clara County. Funds pay for equipment, supplies, and maintenance for the first three years (additional supplies will not need to be purchased for the first five years).
