Shock and Save

Shock and Save Fund Golf Outings

Help Improve AED Access, Availability, and Education... Help Save Lives

The recent expansion of our “Shock and Save” community AED initiative is off to a fantastic start. Through two charity golf outings, we raised enough funds to provide 85 AEDs to the communities it serves. 

“Medstar recognizes community AED placement as the most important component of increasing cardiac arrest survival throughout our nine-county service area,” said Kolby Miller, Medstar CEO. “We’re incredibly thankful for our healthcare and community partners for helping us expand this vital initiative. The more AEDs we can get into the community, the more lives will be saved.”

Medstar matched funds raised at the outings dollar-for-dollar, all of which will go toward purchasing and distributing AEDs in our service area. We will continue to seek funding for the initiative, raise awareness, and provide education in the community about the importance and use of AEDs.
