Rescue 7 raises money for AEDs with the TFC
For the last several years, Rescue 7 has raised money for the Match Officials Appreciation game with the Toronto Football Club. The event honours the hard (and often unsung) work of referees across Ontario while simultaneously raising money for life-saving AEDs to be placed on our pitches. Tragically over the years, we’ve witnessed multiple player deaths around Ontario from heart failure and a pitch-side defibrillator may have been able to make a difference! Here is Rescue 7’s Mackenzie Manning with event founders Rob and Matt, as well as Peter, the President of Ontario Soccer at the event in 2019.
