On Tuesday, June 3, people from across the state traveled to Albany for our first ever CPR Rally! Approximately 100 American Heart Association volunteers performed CPR with some lawmakers as we called on the state Legislature to pass the CPR in Schools bill. The CPR Rally included survivors of sudden cardiac arrest, families of those lost to sudden cardiac arrest, and rescuers who saved lives.
The rally and day were part of the American Heart Association’s "So Many Reasons" campaign. Since May 5, on every legislative session day, state lawmakers have received a "reason" to pass the CPR in Schools bill. The reasons have been pictures of real New Yorkers impacted by sudden cardiac arrest. Will you help pass the CPR in Schools bill?
