Huddle For Hearts makes Sudden Cardiac Arrest prevention, awareness & treatment a priority.
Through Huddle For Hearts™, AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) will be donated to youth sports organizations – focusing primarily on underserved communities.
Early defibrillation with an AED can be the difference between life & death when someone is in cardiac arrest. Huddle For Hearts™ focuses on placing AEDs anywhere that kids play or practice sports or gather.
Bru encourages other athletes to join with him and become involved in Huddle For Hearts™. Athletes can initiate their own fundraising campaigns to raise funds to provide AEDs and CPR & AED training for youth sports across the country. We will also work with athletes to secure individual performance-based sponsorships.

When someone experiences Sudden Cardiac Arrest, it is critically important to immediately start CPR and get an AED to help restore the heart to a normal rhythm.
Too often, the first sign or symptom of an underlying heart issue is sudden cardiac arrest. Less than 10% of victims survive – most often because of a lack of AEDs or failure of bystanders to initiate CPR.
