WNBA Star Shines On And Off The Court

Posted by Thomas Oliver on 6/24/2014 to Lives Saved By AEDs

It’s always a good thing to see athletes working to give back to their community, so when we saw this story, we just had to share.

In April 2013, Tina Charles, a 2-time NCAA basketball champion and former WNBA MVP, started the Hopey’s Heart Foundation in honor of her late aunt, Maureen “Hopey” Vaz.

Inspired by Maureen's generous heart, the foundation's goal is to purchase and distribute AEDs to schools all over the country.

Charles had previously made a large donation to the Wes Leonard Heart Team, another foundation dedicated to distributing AEDs. It's named after Wes Leonard, a high school basketball player who died of sudden cardiac arrest following a game in 2011.

Check out the whole story on ESPN.com to learn more about the great work that Charles has done.

Hats off to you, Tina! Keep it up.
