Medic One Foundation and ScoutReach Team Up to Equip Kids with Life-Saving Skills

This past January, the Medic One Foundation and ScoutReach, a division of the Boy Scouts of America, joined forces to teach life-saving skills to kids across King County. The ScoutReach mission is to ensure that culturally diverse youth in urban and rural communities have the opportunity to participate in the Scouting program.

Over the course of three weeks, the Foundation, alongside ScoutReach staff, provided First Aid and Hands-only CPR/AED training to over 500 youth from kindergarten to 7th grade at various locations throughout King County. Through engaging and interactive sessions, participants learned how to handle various medical emergencies, ranging from minor cuts and scrapes to serious heart issues.

“We are incredibly grateful for our partnership with organizations like ScoutReach,” says Kim Martin, Executive Director of the Medic One Foundation. “We are already planning more classes for the summer, with the aim of reaching even more young learners.”

None of this would be possible without the generosity of donors to the Medic One Foundation. Your support makes educational opportunities, like these, possible benefiting hundreds of children and strengthening our communities.
