Help make Orlando home to a Guinness World Record for largest CPR training session

News 6 morning team to host CPR World Record attempt

ORLANDO, Fla. - Join the News 6 morning team and help break the Guinness World Record for the largest CPR training session.

With the support of the American Heart Association, the city of Orlando and the Florida Department of Health Orange County, Central Floridians are invited to learn CPR and, while doing so, attempt to break the current Guinness World Record for the Largest Training Session of 11,840 people on the use of CPR in 30 minutes.

More than 350,000 people in the U.S. suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests each year, according to the American Heart Association, and statistics prove that if more people knew CPR, more lives could be saved. 

You can sign up here to learn Hands-Only CPR at the free event on Saturday, Oct. 28.

The event will begin promptly at 12:30 p.m., but participants are asked to arrive 60-90 minutes early. Gates will open at 10 a.m.

The event will be held at Camping World Stadium, located at 1 Citrus Bowl Place in Orlando. Admission and parking will be available at no cost.

Organizers are also looking for volunteers for the event. More information about volunteering and registering can be found on ItTakes1.net, or on the event's official Facebook page.
