About Our Campaign
The CYGHA is proud to announce their third annual She Shoots She Saves campaign. This inclusive campaign encourages all participants the opportunity to be active members of their community and experience the positivity and sense of team all while bringing awareness to the importance of community access AEDs by making their community Cardiac Safe. The girls’ inspiration for this fundraiser was a fellow CYGHA Panther who did CPR and used an AED on her father’s friend at a hockey game. Her quick reaction and access to a public AED saved the man's life.
The She Shoots She Saves campaign is hoping to embrace the team spirit and have teams work together to set skill goals and fundraise as a team unit. Teams are encouraged to use the Hockey Share link to track all of their hockey shots and to even to get competitive and send challenges to other teams.
Each year, an estimated 35,000 cardiac arrests occur in Canada. The vast majority happen in public places or at home, and few people survive. But survival rates double if someone performs CPR and uses an automated external defibrillator (AED).
With the success of previous She Shoots She Saves fundraisers, the CYGHA was able to place 7 outdoor SaveStations. This year, we hope our She Shoots She Saves campaign can help save more lives and bring education and awareness to CPR and Public Access AEDs.
