An Evening for Andrew's Legacy

Saturday, February 24th - 8:00pm

London Music Club

Come out for a night of comedy for a great cause. Performers from Shut The Front Door, Off The Hinges, and Hard to Handle will be performing live! 

Andrew's Legacy was created when 15 year old Andrew Stoddart passed away from a sudden cardiac arrest on the soccer field in Kintore. There was no AED (automated external defibrillator) on site, which could have saved his life. It was that night many parents realized a deficiency in our schools and sporting facilities. Every year, about 40,000 cardiac arrests happen in Canada - that’s one every 13 minutes.Cardiac arrest can strike without warning, affecting people of all ages and all degrees of fitness. When cardiac arrest happens, every minute counts. If delivered in the first few minutes of a cardiac arrest, defibrillation and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) can double survival rates. But with each passing minute, the probability of survival decreases by 7 to 10 per cent. Andrew lay on the soccer pitch for 18 minutes, while CPR was being done waiting for the AED to arrive. For the volunteer fire department this was an amazing response time, however still too long for a boy who had his entire life infront of him. 

Working with many local politicians and school board trustees since that day, the Thames Valley District School board now has a policy and procedure in effect in this case of emergency. The board has also put aside $24,000 per year for the maintenance and upkeep of all AED's in their schools. However, they did not put in the budget the money to place the initial devices in ALL SCHOOLS. Our mission is to make sure that happens, before another life is lost when it doesn't have to. 

The goal of Andrew's Legacy is to have AEDs mandated in ALL PUBLIC PLACES. Anywhere there is a fire extinguisher there will be an AED, in Ontario and all across Canada.
