On May 3, 2016, In A Heartbeat made its first Automated External Defibrillator Donation. The AED was donated to the Manchester Knights Youth Sports and Cheerleading Program. Manchester Mayor Jay Moran was on hand for the donation along with In A Heartbeat President Mike Papale, Vice President Joan Papale, and Board Member Brandon Gade.
“It is an indescribable feeling to finally be able to donate our first Automated External Defibrillator,” said Mike Papale. “I just want to thank everyone on our board and anyone else that has supported In A Heartbeat. It would not be possible without their help.”
In A Heartbeat will be donating another AED on Wednesday, May 4, 2016 to the Ulbrich Boys & Girls Club in Wallingford, CT.
