CPR Ready: Hands-Free Training

Location: The Running Place
Date: Wednesday, October 30th, 2019
Time: 6:30-7:30PM

Join "The Running Place" and The Foundation for Delaware County on Wednesday, Oct.. 30th to become a responsive person for your community. This is a free event, so tell your friends.

Goals of the CPR Ready course

1) Improve the survival rate of people who experience out-of-hospital cardiac arrest by energizing and expanding existing resources and programs.
2) Double the number of people who are knowledgeable about and willing to perform bystander CPR and use an automated external defibrillator (AED) when available.
3) Triple the current use of bystander CPR.
4)Teach CPR/AED education in at least half of the middle and high schools in the Philadelphia region in the next 3 years.
5) Long-term goal: CPR/AED education and AEDs in all of our middle and high schools.

This is a hands-free course that could help save a life!!! This is not a certification course.

Local Stats:
In 2015, more than 1,100 people died from sudden cardiac arrest in Philadelphia alone. Most of them died because someone wasn't trained or willing to perform CPR. The percentage of people who received bystander CPR in Philadelphia is 15.0%, which is significantly lower than the national rate of 39.9%. Hands-only CPR can double or even triple a victim's chance of survival. With the proper education and training, we can significantly increase CPR awareness and cardiac arrest survival rates.

The Right Foot Forward Your Experience

At The Running Place, our goal is to ensure that you not only receive the right shoes, but also understand the reasons behind the choice. We provide free consultations, where we perform a gait analysis, inspect your worn out shoes for telling wear patterns, and talk with you about any injury history. All of this information helps us determine what shoe type is best for you.


Every journey begins with the first step. Before you take that first step, make sure you have the right shoes to get you where you are going. There are high arches, flat arches, and all heights in between. Some feet are rigid and some are flexible. There are different categories of shoes - different foot types are more comfortable and perform better in the right category. We will help you determine your foot type and which category best suits your needs.
