Heart and Soul AED Champion Award
The Village Tavern
for donating Defibrillators to the community
by the Louis T. Savino, III Foundation
on April 25th, 2015
The St. Patty’s Day Shock Run is an annual event hosted by the team at the Village Tavern in order to raise awareness about AEDs, or automatic external defibrillators. Each year, the proceeds from the race are used to buy defibrillators for local companies, organizations, or even private homes. An AED can save a life, and that is the goal each year the race is held.
Do you Know of Someone that Needs a Defibrillator?
Each year, roughly 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, but many heart attack sufferers have the possibility of recovering if they could get help faster. Half of the people who die from heart attacks do so within an hour of their first symptoms, and before they reach the hospital. When defibrillators are used immediately after symptoms occur, the chance of surviving drastically increases. 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 know of someone that needs a defibrillator please have them submit a letter stating their need and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
