Former Wiggle Greg Page’s not-for-profit, Heart of The Nation, and Nextdoor are joining forces to save Aussie lives. With one simple step, you can help save a family member, friend, or neighbour.
Earlier this year, Greg survived a cardiac arrest thanks to some brave bystanders who were in the audience of The Wiggles' concert. An audience member revived Greg by using CPR and an AED (Automated External Defibrillator). Greg was lucky, because the survival rate for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is only 10%. We want to change this.
A New World Record
The Australian Resuscitation Council states that ‘any attempt at resuscitation is better than no attempt’. Greg says, “Our goal is to get as many people as possible educated about this mantra, and confident enough to have a go at CPR if they ever need to.”
Together, Heart of the Nation and Nextdoor are on a mission to provide free CPR and AED training to more Aussies than ever before. Greg and Surf Lifesaving Australia will lead a special virtual training class on the 19th of September, at 7pm AEST
