This Save-A-Life Simulator is part of the The HeartRescue Project and it is so amazing we just had to share it.Heart Rescue Project

It walks you through a situation where someone is suffering from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).  As it tests your knowledge, it simultaneously teaches you what to do if you find yourself in the position of helping someone suffering from sudden cardiac arrest.

Please take the time to go through the simulator.  It is very well done, and it’s also a lot of fun!


The HeartRescue Project, funded by the Medtronic Foundation, is dedicated to improving how sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is recognized, treated and measured.

Davies Harley Davidson Richmond HillDavies Harley Davidson in Richmond Hill, Ontario,  just got a little safer.  

Every MIKEY we place is exciting, but this week was just a little more fun than usual.

Davies Harley Davidson had their MIKEY  installed and their staff was trained in AED / CPR.

Even if you don’t ride, who doesn’t love a beautiful Harley?  We couldn’t resist the excuse opportunity to head to this amazing dealership in Richmond Hill, to meet the staff as they went through their MIKEY training (and see some of the most amazing motorcycles around!)

Placing MIKEYs in as many public places as possible is part of our mission at The Mikey Network.  We hope more businesses follow Davies Harley Davidson’s lead and install a MIKEY and train their staff in life-saving CPR / AED.

Once again, The Mikey Network was proud to partner with the Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada, at The 2012 Walk of Life.  The Walk  took place on place Sunday, May 27th, 2012 at a new location, the Evergreen Brick Works.

We want to thank all of our donors, volunteers, and all the members of Team Mikey for making the 2012 Walk of Life such a great success!

The Walk of Life raises money for the Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada, whose cardiac rehabilitation centres take over where our MIKEYs  leave off, helping thousands of cardiac survivors recover and ideally live long and heart healthy lives.

Thanks to the generous support of our donors, the Mikey Network raised $150,000!

The Brick Works was a wonderful place for a 3 KM or 5 KM Walk, or 5 KM Run.  This years event even featured a 10 KM Cycle.

It was a beautiful day, and the Team Mikey family was out in full force.
