George “Sparky” Stefureac’s Story

George was our own “MIRACLE ON ICE.”

On January 14, 2011 During a weekly hockey game with his buddy’s George went off the bench to play, scored a goal and came back to the bench and went into sudden and complete cardiac arrest! He was dead. With the quick thinking of his team mates they started CPR. Lucky for George, The Kensington Valley Ice House in Brighton had an AED. They used it and where able to shock his heart back into rythem. George was taken to the hospital and was told by the doctors that if they did not have an AED he would not be here with us today. The Sparky Defibrillator Challenge is the end result of a near tragic event.

Our History

George survived an out-of-hospital Cardiac Arrest and is now able to tell his story, but he didn’t want to stop there. He wanted to give back so more people have the recourses needed to survive like he did by having an AED on site. A group of us jumped on board and we have been doing everything we can to raise money and awareness. We worked with Jeff Boyd, of Livingston County EMS to make sure we purchased the right equipment compatible with the their ambulances.

With the help of Detroit Red Wing Alumni, the First Responders of Livingston County, and various donations, we were able to donate to many organizations in our community. Among those are the Pregnancy Helpline in Brighton, The American Legion of Howell, The Salvation Army Shelter of Brighton, Livingston County Special Olympics, and Freedom Works

We knew we needed to expand to help more people to have a chance to survive. So with consulting with Jeff Boyd of EMS and several Police Officers we decided that since a Police car is most always the 1st on site for them to carry AED’s in their Cars. We have been able to put about 40 AED in our Livingston County Police Cars. We have also help many company’s who do not qualify for our program can purchase AED’s at our cost.
