LACONIA — Irwin Automotive Group is tying their annual Ford Big Tire Event with a fundraiser to help the Lakes Region Lacrosse Club purchase an automated external defibrillator (AED).

Titled "Save a Life and $100", Irwin’s Big Tire Event starts April 1 and offers a $100 rebate on the purchase of four tires installed by Irwin. Brands participating include Goodyear, Dunlop, Continental, Hankook, Pirelli and Yokohama. Irwin will donate $1 for each tire sold during the Big Tire Event in April to the Lakes Region Lacrosse Club.

Thanks to their small size and ease of use, AEDs have recently been installed in many settings such as schools and airports. The Robbie Levine Foundation was created specifically to educate the public and youth sports leagues as to the importance of AEDs in saving lives. Their mission is to make defibrillators standard equipment in all youth athletics programs.

The Lakes Region Lacrosse Club, a member of the New Hampshire Youth Lacrosse Association League, attracts over 150 boys and girls, ages 8-16. In its 17th season, the club is also active in supporting the development of high school lacrosse teams. The AED Defibrillator will be used at the Lakes Region Lacrosse field in the Meadows Complex in Gilford. To find out more about the club, visit www.lrlacrosse.org.
