Heartwize Runners was created in early 2016 after the successful resuscitation of a fellow competitor who sustained a sudden cardiac arrest in a cross-country race. Fortunately, other runners on scene were able to provide immediate cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) having been trained at work. Their skills saved the life of a previously fit runner and have inspired us to offer lifesaving CPR and defibrillator (AED) training to all runners in the region and beyond. Volunteers become TRAINERS or "HEARTWIZE AMBASSADORS" to cascade lifesaving CPR and AED skills across the running community. Our aim is to make every runner in the UK and beyond confident to provide high quality CPR should they witness a cardiac arrest. We believe that by disseminating these skills via a volunteer force of trainers we can help to create a community of lifesavers.
