Schools are more than a setting where cherished memories are made. They are where lifelong friendships begin. Where arts, music and theatre flourish. Where political decisions are made. And where parents meet and share stories.
Schools are the lifeblood of Peel District, just as they are in other regions and communities. But they are also places where Sudden Cardiac Arrest can happen to you or your friends and family members at any time … during a basketball game, gym class or even walking up a flight of stairs.
Through the Mikey Young At Heart program, we place MIKEYs in schools to offer a second chance at life for students who experience Sudden Cardiac Arrest, as well as their teachers, coaches, parents, grandparents and siblings. We are proud to play a role in helping to ensure that lifelong learning in schools can continue for everyone in Peel and across the province, including your children.
