Did you know that October is Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) month? 1 student dies every 3 days because of SCA. Learn more about what Rescue 7 and the Chase McEachern Memorial Fund are doing to prevent these sudden young deaths below. You can also educate yourself on how to monitor your child’s health here, with the help of Parent Heart Watch.

The TFC event was a great success! With $6 from every ticket for the October 1st match donated to Rescue 7, we,  in partnership with the Ontario Soccer Association and the Toronto FC, raised $5000.00! This will mean so many more Ontario soccer fields will have a defibrillator on hand! We are so excited to play a key role in this initiative. You can read more about the collaboration here.

The team at the Dave Mounsey Memorial Fund is one we are constantly proud to work with. On Saturday, November 5th, you have a chance to help them raise even MORE money to donate defibrillators, in honour of fallen soldiers.

All will be dancing to help donate the defibrillator of the hour – in memory of Corporal Randy Payne, killed in Afghanistan in 2006. Cpl. Payne’s parents will be in attendance.
