On a routine morning trail walk, Chris Holton, a typically healthy individual, experienced a near-fatal heart attack. Luckily, a bystander trained in CPR taught by the American Heart Association, sprang into action and saved Chris life.

Too often this is not the case. That’s why the American Heart Association is launching their latest public service announcement, Chris. The PSA is more than a message; it’s a call to action. It will empower your audience to learn CPR and become the hero who can make a difference during a heart attack.

Air Chris today and play a pivotal role in helping the American Heart Association spread the word about CPR training. Together we can ensure more stories like Chris have a happy ending and more bystanders become life-saving heroes.

The American Heart Association is the largest not-for-profit funding source for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease research next to the federal government, resulting in 14 Nobel Prize winners and several important medical breakthroughs including techniques and standards for CPR, the first artificial heart valve, implantable pacemakers, cholesterol inhibitors, microsurgery and drug-coated stents.

The American Heart Association helps save lives through research that leads to medical breakthroughs; education that leads to individual prevention; and advocating for change in systems and policies that together help loved ones, families and communities live happier, healthier and longer lives.
