The purpose of Operation Revive, in essence, is to save lives in our community. We save lives through ensuring Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are available in public spaces to restart the heart of someone experiencing cardiac arrest outside of the hospital.
For us, it starts with Stayin Alive’ — our annual fundraiser at the Double Tree Hotel. This event is responsible for the majority of our Operation Revive funding. Local community members, businesses, and dedicated committee members make it possible for us to donate approximately 15 AEDs each year to McLean County.
Our goal each year is to grow our event to raise funds and awareness and funds for AEDs and CPR in the community, but we need help! It begins with you — the generous supporters who attend the event, the local businesses who generously donate to our live and silent auctions, and our dedicated committee — one that works hard, has fun, and improves the lives of our fellow citizens.
We are looking for support to raise funds for our Operation Revive program. One hundred percent of the funds raised at Operation Revive are used to purchase defibrillators and stays in the McLean County community.
If you are interested in assisting us in Stayin’ Alive this year- we are always looking for help, ideas, and support. Please consider joining us in making this a successful endeavor, as it truly could save the life of someone you know.
