"NOT ALL SAVES HAPPEN ON THE ICE"
WE have the power to save a life!
Last year the Central York Girls Hockey Peewee Orange Crush team raised money to place two life saving AED SaveStations at local community outdoor rinks in Newmarket and Aurora. 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.
This year, CYGHA has decided to launch the She Shoots, She Saves campaign as a way to engage all of the girls and their families during COVID and continue to bring awareness for the importance of publicly accessible AEDs.
She Shoots, She Saves will challenge each girl to set an individual goal of how many hockey shots she can take between March 13-27. Each girl will be encouraged to gather pledges from family, and friends through this crowdfunding page to raise money to make two more AEDS publicly accessible 24/7 by placing them inside heated, ventilated and monitored SaveStation towers within the community of York Region.
Together we have the power to save a life and make our community Cardiac Safe!
With less than 10 minutes to save a life from Sudden Cardiac Arrest, we all need the power to take action. Automatic External Defibrillators (or AEDs) are empowering the public to save lives - now AEDs can be found in SaveStations across the world - in our public spaces and communities - available 24/7!
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is still one of the leading causes of death and can happen to anyone, anywhere and at any time. With greater access, education and awareness about AEDs we can make a huge difference!
Please help us place 2 #SaveStations with life-saving AEDs in our community and make our neighbourhood #CardiacSafe. 100% of your generous donation goes to this campagin and will help us reach our goal of raising $20,000
Thank you for your support!
