At Smiling Hearts - The Nick Blakely Foundation (NBF), our vision is to turn every potential tragedy of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) into a story of survival.

We believe this is possible by advancing overall awareness to young athletes, parents, and coaches; providing youth, schools, and organizations with access to life-saving automated external defibrillators; implementing training standards and safety protocols in athletic associations and educational institutions; and advocating for the establishment of legislation supporting SCA standardized requirements.

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."


A verse from Philippians 4:13, Nick's favorite scripture from the Bible.
