Greer Firestone is the founder and driving force behind Heart in the Game (HIIG), a 501c3 non-profit that was founded in 2014 after student-athlete Grace Firestone suffered a Sudden Cardiac Arrest 2 days after her high school graduation.  HITG’s mission is to make Delaware the “Heart Healthiest” state.  Their program advocates for screening every middle and high school student in Delaware for underlying cardiac issues that put them at risk for Sudden Cardiac Arrest....for FREE. Also, they work to provide regular, free community education opportunities to learn bystander CPR, as well as provide grants to place public access AED’s in strategic locations where they don’t exist today.  Over the past 5 years Heart In The Game has staged 22 events in Delaware, offering FREE EKG screening and training in CPR/AED.
