Our friends at Canada’s 911 Foundation made it possible for The Mikey Network to deliver a MIKEY defibrillator to the Bradford Curling Club, in memory of York Regional Police Superintendent Mark Grant, who curled at the Bradford club. Superintendent Grant was killed in a tragic 2-vehicle collision on October 27, 2011, in Uxbridge. He received the Governor General’s Exemplary Service Medal in 2000, and his 30 Year Service Bar in 2010.
The Mikey Network will train up to 10 people in CPR / AED at the location.
Through the 7th Annual 911 Ride, Canada’s 911 Foundation raised $20,000 for The Mikey Network to help us place our MIKEYs in more public places.
To date, 1,300 MIKEY defibrillators have been placed, over 11,000 people have been trained in CPR / AED and 14 lives have been saved by a MIKEY.
