MILLBURN – Accidents and emergencies can happen anywhere at any time. Thanks to support from The Danielle Brender Fund, Inc., American Red Cross will offer Adult CPR/AED training in Millburn on Sunday, Feb. 10 at a special rate of $20 (with coupon).
This is the 12th year for the event in honor of Danielle Brender, a seemingly healthy 11-year-old who died after suffering Sudden Cardiac Arrest on April 15, 2000. Danielle’s death was attributed to Long QT Syndrome, an electrical disturbance in the heart. Her parents were not aware she had this condition and since her death, three of her four siblings, as well as a parent and grandparent, have been diagnosed with this disorder.
Danielle’s parents, Sharon & Avi Brender, founded the Danielle Brender Fund, Inc. in her memory. Each year, the Brenders arrange to have American Red Cross Adult CPR/AED training available to arm community members with life-saving skills to help others. Registration is required.
