Helping to Make our Michigan Schools Heart-Safe
Since December of 1999, the State of Michigan has lost at least 62 students to sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) and related causes. This website is created in their memory.
In Loving Memory of Kimberly Anne Gillary ~ August 21, 1984 - April 3, 2000
100% of all donations are used
to purchase AEDs and training
for Michigan Schools.
Please view our proposed Model for Michigan High Schools. This is our recommendation for what needs to be done in order for schools to be adequately prepared to handle cardiac emergencies. Please join the Kimberly Anne Gillary Foundation in encouraging our Michigan Schools to make the commitment to hold a CPR/AED Practice Drill during one of these weeks. It is also a good opportunity to raise awareness for the need for AEDs and proper training. More information can be found at www.aeddrill.com.
