Another 1,000+ Downingtown Sixth Graders Learn How to Save a Life!

by | Jan 12, 2017

On January 10th and 11th, 2017, another 1,050 sixth grade students at the Marsh Creek Sixth Grade Center (Downingtown Area School District) were trained in Hands-Only CPR+AED instruction by Aidan’s Heart Foundation and generous medical volunteers, many from Chester County Hospital! And 35 young “Heart Heroes” who have obtained CPR certification helped train their peers!

To date, Aidan’s Heart Foundation has taught 3,150 sixth grade students CPR+AED skills (2017 statistic). Of all the things kids learn in school, shouldn’t they learn how to save a life?

Thank you to our volunteers and to Mr. Mulvey and the PE teachers at MC6GC! Click here to see photos, video, and our CPR+AED Mannequin Challenge!
