2019 Simplyhealth Great Manchester Run – Staffordshire1000 Dual Campaign

Tue 21 May 2019

AEDdonate are working with local Community Champions to boost 24/7 Public Accessible Defibrillators (PADs) in rural villages Great Haywood and Yarnfield, respectively.

As part of this fundraising James Russell, raising funds for two further PADs in Great Haywood, and Aidan Oates and Tanisha Jones, raising funds for an additional PAD in Yarnfield, join 30,000 other runners in completely the 2019 Simplyhealth Great Manchester Run on 19th May 2019.

Both James and Aidan work for AEDdonate and wanted to show their committed to improving Defibrillaot provision in their home villages, practising what they preach and working with neighbours and residents to make sure they are better protected from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), which is the UK’s biggest killer.

AEDdonate Chief Executive Jamie Richards said, “It is fantastic that James and Aidan have taken on the challenge for their respective villages, and for Tanisha, Aidan’s Girlfriend, to get involved. We know that emergency response times to the more rural villages and hamlets can be 8-12 minutes and with the chances of SCA survival dropping by 10-14% every minute that CPR and defibrillation is not provided, additional coverage in Yarnfield and Great Haywood will be fantastic for local residents”.
