May 8th was a busy day at Legislative Hall in Dover. As a special part of 2013 Delaware Advocacy Day, advocates were joined by 24 students from Cape Henlopen High School JROTC to not only advocate for CPR training as a graduation requirement, but to demonstrate how easy it is to learn by having the students train lawmakers in this lifesaving skill.
Following the training, advocates and students met with several legislators to also discuss increased support for biking and walking trails and support for the Million Hearts Initiative. They concluded the day with a meeting with Governor Markell to thank him for his support of improvements in biking and walking trails, leading to the recent jump of Delaware from 10th to 5th most bike-friendly state.
Thanks to all the students and advocates who made the day a success!
