Each January for the last 3 years we have had students from DePauw University move to Louisville and become instructors for our foundation. These students are from all over the country and the world. They teach full time for the majority of the month. This year in addition to the DePauw students we started our 3 teaching teams for our Spring teaching session this year. These students live near Louisville but 2 students travel from Lexington to teach each Friday. Our spring students are from Indiana University Southeast, University of Louisville, Spalding University and the University of Kentucky.
This was our single biggest month of CPR training ever. These students taught over 3470 people hands only CPR. We taught in over 22 area high schools in 3 different counties in the Louisville metro area. We taught over 28 separate free hands only CPR classes during this time period.
The great news is that we heard that someone that we taught CPR during this month already used that skill and the cardiac arrest victim left the scene alive. Great to get an immediate save and that makes 7 saves that we know of to date.
Our instructors are full time college students, often not from our city and they selflessly give their time and effort helping our community. We are extremely grateful for there efforts. Thanks to our instructors for everything that they have done.
