I ran the Heart Mini 15k in Mar 2022 for the first time but little did I know that I would get to experience the difference American heart association makes first hand a few months later.
On June 4th 2022 while working out at my local Gym (Orange Theory Montgomery) I collapsed due to a cardiac arrest with no pulse. Swift action by the coach (I will be forever grateful to her) and a fellow Gym member I was revived using CPR and a Defib. Few days in the hospital and a couple of procedures later I was back on my feet and now I am at a stage that I will be attempting the run all over again..
I cannot stress the importance of CPR, my episode prompted me to get CPR trained myself by AHA run program. I would encourage others to also get certified and not be a bystander if you see something like this happening in front of you. The certification involves a small online portion and an in person demo/class.
I am seeking support from you for this worthy cause, will you be a Heart Walk Hero with me?
