Ten years ago Gwyneth Griffin suffered an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. What she needed was for someone to quickly respond and give her hands-only CPR. Just a few weeks after her 13th birthday, Gwyneth passed away as a result of this incident. Gwyneth is our WHY.
Gwyneth was a happy, carefree, loving, and beautiful young lady. She enjoyed many activities and sports, but dance was what her heart loved the most. Gwyneth learned ballet, tap, jazz, and lyrical styles from the age of four but would ultimately fall in love with Irish dance. To read more about Gwyneth, click here.
Gwyneth’s Gift Foundation was formed in Gwyneth’s honor and memory. She is the reason we started, but the reason we continue is because of the lives that are saved every day thanks to proper CPR and AED training.
To date, we know of at least seven lives that have been saved because of our training and because of Gwyneth.
Gwyneth is the driving force behind everything we do. We honor her spirit by working to fulfill our mission to create a world where everyone can save a life.
