SMART Wokingham rushing to raise money for a defibrillatior!

On Sunday 20th May staff from SMART Wokingham will be taking part in the Color Obstacle Rush in Windsor. The team are hoping to raise £1500 through sponsorship and donations to purchase a defibrillator for the service.

About SMART Wokingham

What is a defibrillator?

A defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart through the chest wall to someone who is in cardiac arrest.

Why is it important to have a defibrillator at SMART Wokingham?

When someone suffers a cardiac arrest, time is of the essence. If we can get to them quickly, start CPR, and get a defibrillator on them quickly, we dramatically improve their chance of survival.

What is the Color Obstacle Rush?

The Color Obstacle Rush is a unique event over 5 kilometres, combining colour powdered runs and a challenging obstacle course, with the atmosphere of a music festival.
