Kids with Heart...Do you know any kids that are working to make a difference? We do! Meet Molly Budzinski and Joey Mendrick.
Molly just started her senior year at Orchard Park High School. Before heading back to school, Molly traveled from Buffalo to Albany to met with Governor Cuomo's Assistant Secretary of Education to ask the Governor to sign the #CPRinSchools bill. After learning that CPR wasn't taught in her school, Molly spoke to school officials and started a CPR training program . And now over 1700 students have been trained! Molly is passionate about CPR because she lost her grandmother to sudden cardiac arrest.
Joey is another student with Heart! Just 14, Joey Mendrick recently wrote to Governor Cuomo to offer to teach him Hands-Only CPR. Joey has already trained WNBA start Tina Charles - here's hoping Gov. Cuomo is next! Joey knows the importance of CPR - he's alive because someone knew CPR. Why teach CPR in Schools? #Joeyiswhy
