In light of recent events surrounding our community involving everyday healthy young athletes dying while participating in sports, we thought as a board that it would be a good idea to obtain an Automated External Defibrilator (AED) that would be housed within our equipment trailer so it is available at all times at the fields if there were ever to be an emergency. Along with the AED our board and coaches will receive training annually.
Many sports clubs simply cannot afford a good AED unit (they are quite expensive), so we chose to reach out to a local foundation right here in West Michigan who donates AEDs to schools and sports programs. We were honored that they chose our club to receive an AED. This entity is the Wes Leonard Heart Foundation. This foundation functions strictly on private donations and because we were honored to receive a unit from them, we would like to give back to this local organization
So we are asking for your help in this cause. All donations will be sent to the non-profit entity, Wes Leonard Heart Foundation, in the name of Hastings FC to help their continued success of donating AED to schools and sports teams all over the state.
