The initiative helps bring awareness to cardiac arrest in children.
“The American Camp Association is committed to helping camps provide a safe environment for campers,” adds Tom Rosenberg, ACA’s president/CEO. “This AED initiative teaches campers what an AED looks like and how it can help save a life — a powerful tool to learn at camp and use the rest of their lives.” Campers are encouraged to search for an AED at their camp, take a photo of themselves near the AED, and then post the photo and its location on social media outlets such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram with the hashtags #ProtectKidsHearts and #MyCampAED.
The Children’s Cardiomyopathy Foundation is a national organization focused on finding causes and cures for all forms of pediatric cardiomyopathy, a chronic and potentially life-threatening heart disease. CCF started in 2002 with one family’s determination to call attention to a poorly understood heart disease and to take action on the lack of medical progress and public awareness. Since then, CCF has grown into a global community of families, physicians, and scientists raising more than $13.5 million for research and education initiatives, family support, and awareness and advocacy measures.
