On Thursday June 2nd, Aidan’s Heart Foundation hosted for the first time a “Youth-Led Hands-Only CPR + AED Community Training” event at the Marsh Creek Sixth Grade Center. While the event was hosted by our three Heart Hero CPR trainers, Cameron Donovan, Teigan Brown, and Jack O’Connell, the event itself would not have been possible without the time, effort, and dedication of the Heart Hero Executive Team. This Heart Hero Executive Team is made up of three local high-school students—Maycie Kulp, Bailey Mullen, and Anna Powers.

Aidan’s Heart Foundation takes extensive pride in our volunteers and once again chooses to use this opportunity to highlight each of the three young Heart Hero Executive Team members. These Heart Hero members contributed significantly to the preparation and success of the June 2nd event.

Another spotlight hero—ANNA POWERS.

Anna, a Chester County native, has lived in both Coatesville and Downingtown, and is an upcoming high school junior attending Downingtown East High School. In addition to her academic responsibilities, she describes herself as an avid travel soccer player, a nature and hiking enthusiast, and a devoted friend and family member.

Anna has always been a fervent believer in and supporter of Aidan’s Heart Foundation. Recently, after witnessing the positive and encouraging impact the foundation has had in many local communities this soccer enthusiast decided it was time for her to take an active role dedicated to the foundation and furthering their mission.

The high school junior takes pride in her contributions in the planning side of the foundation. She describes the June 2nd “Youth-Led Hands-Only CPR + AED Community Training” event as “rewarding.” She was most impressed witnessing an entire community coming together to learn life-saving skills.

As was shared by our two previous Heart Hero Executive Team members, Maycie Kulp and Bailey Mullen, Anna reiterated the significance of learning and knowing how to conduct CPR and the proper use of an AED in order to save a life.

Although unsure of what the future holds, Anna is intent on pursuing a bachelor’s degree after receiving her high school diploma. Regardless of where her academic journey steers her, this soon to be junior shared that she remains fully committed to Aidan’s Heart Foundation and plans on participating as long as she is able.
