AED fundraiser is a success!
We love feel-good stories, and this is one for the books. Christchurch mum, Aisling O’Riordan and her son, Sawyer combined their love of the outdoors with their annual tradition of fundraising for a charity in lieu of their own birthday presents.
To celebrate O’Riordan’s 40th birthday, and Sawyer’s 6th, they raised over $3000 to install an AED in their suburb of St Albans in Christchurch. The mum and son duo share a passion for hiking and have completed tracks including the Rakiura track in Stewart Island (32km) and St James Walkway (68km) as part of the fundraiser.
The two gained attention from Stuff in an article recognising their generous community spirit.
