FREE Community CPR at the Marine Corps Historic Half Expo



The Marine Corps Historic Half and Red Cross will offer free training in
Community CPR at the Healthy Lifestyle Expo. Statistics show that if more
people knew CPR, more lives could be saved. By offering free training at the
Expo, the Historic Half is seeking to populate the 13.1 mile course with as
many trained individuals as possible.  Immediate CPR can double, or even
triple, a victim's chance of survival.  The training includes watching an
instructional video and demonstrating this hands-only technique that is
intended to sustain life until advanced care arrives.  All who complete the
training will receive a red MCM Community Corps wristband to wear on event
morning.
