It's official! We have set a new record in most people taking part in a simultaneous CPR session. We celebrated Global Restart a Heart Day together with over a hundred thousand people!
First aid training in Kalisz
CPR for Schools educational programme is based on a very simple, yet very effective premise: primary school teachers become first aid instructors for their pupils. This way first aid knowledge is becoming universally available to primary school children and up to date, nearly 3 million children have learned CPR and the basics of first aid. This time our instructors are demonstrating the elements of the CPR for Schools programme to the primary school teachers from Kalisz.
The two-day CPR and first aid course is free and all teaching aids and materials such as handbooks and exercise books, manikins and DVDs are free. What is more, teachers who are actively participating in the CPR for Schools educational initiative can request new materials for their students.
Jurek Owsiak, the chairman and the creator of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation, picked up the European Citizen's Prize on behalf of the entire Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation.
Join us in this year's record attempt. We will be celebrating "Restart a Heart' Day on October the 16th and showing how easy it is to learn the basics of CPR. Everyone is welcome to participate or hold their own event locally!
