Help Us Train and Educate 250,000 Pennsylvanians in CPR

Dear Mark:

In January 2013 we kicked off the first ever Lend a Hand, Save a Life CPR Challenge, a statewide campaign that seeks to educate Pennsylvanians on how to respond to sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), a leading killer of Americans. The campaign runs through May 26, 2013 and we need your help to spread the word about this challenge!  For more information, please visit

This campaign is a call to action to EMS providers, health educators, and community leaders to teach the general public about sudden cardiac arrest and train as many people as possible across the Commonwealth in the basic principles of CPR.  Collaborative partners include: American Heart Association, Pennsylvania Bureau of EMS and Pennsylvania HeartRescue Project. Together, our aim is to reach 250,000 people by the end of EMS Week (May 26, 2013), and we challenge you to help us reach this goal. 

Please forward this e- mail to any CPR Trainers you know so that they can register events online at to track the number of people trained and the date and location of the training. Numbers will be reflected on the website so the public can track progress, and prizes will be distributed at an awards ceremony at the close of the campaign to the top participating training groups.

Thank you for your commitment to improving health care in our Commonwealth, and to saving the lives of its citizens!
