Free CPR Kit to be given at Winter Workshop

Free American Heart Association CPR Curriculum!!!!!!!

          Interested in teaching the new CPR curriculum from the American Heart Association but don’t have the funding to purchase one?  We may just be able to help!

At the Winter Workshop, “Total Nonstop Action with Fitness and Nutrition Concepts” featuring Alex O’Brian, a free CPR curriculum will be given away to one lucky teacher.

          Rose Hill parent, Cate Baker and her family have donated one brand new CPR curriculum to be given away.  When their daughter, Emma, was in middle school, regular people trained in CPR saved her life.  Since that time, Cate, Emma and their family have worked to raise money to purchase the curriculum.  Their intention was to donate it to the Rose Hill school district, but recently the school district purchased the curriculum with textbook monies.

          It is the Baker family’s wish that a teacher in Kansas receives this gift and passes on the knowledge to save others.  At the workshop, any teacher that is truly intent on using the curriculum will be able to put their name into the free raffle.  Cate and Emma will draw out the winner’s name and one lucky teacher will walk out with a totally free American Heart Association CPR curriculum.  Cate and Emma’s story can be watched at the following link.
