Dear participants in the GTA heart map challenge, friends, and those considering signing up for the challenge.

Given public health announcements about Covid 19, and the risk of being in large gatherings and public spaces, we understand that many participants will be reluctant to find and identify AED’s in public spaces.

Although it is complicated for us to suspend the GTA heart map challenge, we understand that participants may feel that there is a risk of being in public spaces. We have therefore temporarily suspended the GTA heart map challenge until further notice.

All AED’s uploaded thus far will continue to be registered and count towards the prizes. We will of course resume the challenge, and extend the end date, when we have further information from Toronto public health, and other public health agencies with regards to the safety of participants being in public spaces as part of the challenge.

We are most concerned with the safety and health of the participants, and any other members of the public who are at potential risk.

Thank you for your engagement and participation. We regret the difficulties this may pose for all participants, and will do our best to communicate details about resuming the challenge as soon as possible.

Did you Know:

In the event of a cardiac arrest, survival increases from 10% to 50% if an automated external defibrillator (AED) is used?

Did you know:

There are about 20,000 AEDs in Toronto. Fewer than 10% are registered.
