AED Scavenger Hunt Kicks Off in Denver

DENVER – The American Heart Association, American Red Cross, Denver Health & University of Colorado are challenging the public to participate in a massive, weeklong scavenger hunt throughout the Denver-metro area in the name of saving lives.

The AED Scavenger Hunt will kick off Saturday, June 2, in conjunction with National CPR-AED Awareness Week. The initiative challenges participants to find as many automated external defibrillators (AEDs) as possible in the community. Teams and individuals that locate the greatest number of devices during the weeklong hunt will be eligible to win prizes – but the biggest prize is knowing that their work could help save a life.
