AceHope was established in 2016 and provides life-saving techniques and education to people in a fun and engaging environment. Currently, about 9 in 10 people who have cardiac arrest outside the hospital, die. There are a crossroads that exists, of life or death, depending on what measures are taken. AceHope's mission is to empower you at that crossroads to react quickly and more so to be the reason that LIFE is chosen in that very moment.
