We have a new record!
On October the 16th we all decided to celebrate the global edition of Restart a Heart Day by attempting to set a new record. We tried to gather as many people who would perform a 30-minute simultaneous CPR session together! In 2017 we have been joined by 85 010 people and we aimed to gather even more people this year! Our initiative aims to show how easy it is to learn CPR. We also want to promote this skill and introduce even more people to basics of it!
For two months we have received applications from schools, libraries, and other organizations which decided to host their own record attempt. We can now confirm that across the county there were:
116 342 participants
7 465 manikins
1 155 organizations
Each year we finish the day of the Grand Finale fundraiser with a preliminary amount of money we collected in aid of our charity. The sum is preliminary because it is based on the estimated amount raised by our volunteers, our online auctions and other means of support.
A vibrant, diverse group of people decides each year decides to become volunteers and commit their time effort to raise money in aid of our wonderful initiative. We wanted to know who they are.... so we asked you!
