Ted Brennan: Paying it Forward

Ted Brennan was given a second chance at life: through a series of incredibly fortunate events and extraordinary people, including race staff and participants, State Park Rangers, EMT's and The Reading Hospital medical staff.  He is heading home with flying colors against the odds - as a stellar recovering patient! Ted touches so many people in his diverse circles  - beloved family, neighbors, friends, fellow United and Navy pilots, fellow athletes, Nova Nation, EMAC and EHS Swimming, St. Thomas More parishoners...and more. We can all agree this is man who cares deeply about his community, and dedicates his time to make this world a better place.  Now he will do it again:  the Brennan family has asked in lieu of meals or other generous offers,  please support the  purchase of several Automated External Defibrillators (AED's)-- to be placed at Trident Swim Club and as many other local spots as can be funded.  This life-saving device brought Ted back to life (after excellent CPR), and he would like to pay it forward and provide that chance TO LIVE to others.  Quality AED's cost several thousand dollars each.  Let's imagine that dedication party at Trident! Thank you for celebrating Ted and the Brennan Family!

UPDATE: With the astonishing generosity of Ted's family and friends, the Brennan's have expanded the goal to provide AED's for as many community pools in the ABE Swim League as can be funded.  THANK YOU to all of you for helping Ted pay it forward!
