FitCPR Fun Run 2017

This is the first ever 5 km fun run event which incorporates hands-only CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) practice. Besides promoting healthy lifestyle through the run, FITCPR Fun Run help to build awareness on the importance of CPR and performing it correctly.

Please click http://www.fitcprfunrun.com for information on FIT CPR.

Therefore, in conjunction with the 20th anniversary celebration of Emergency Department PPUKM, we embarked on a mission to educate public on what is CPR and train as many people as possible on the techniques of hands-only CPR. In line with WHO Sustainable Developmental Goals (SDG 3 and SDG 4), spreading awareness and teaching the public on how to Initiate CPR will help enable people with the necessary skills to help others in the near future.

For that we invite all Malaysians, young or old, first timers or athletes, to come and join our first ever FIT CPR FUN RUN, on the 9th of December 2017. It is not just about getting yourselves fit and healthy but more importantly you will learn to save lives. Participants will be taught on CPR techniques prior to the start of the run and will have to complete another cycle of CPR upon completion at the allocated stations. There will be healthcare providers to assist you in the training.

On top of that, for those who wishes to support the runners, they can enjoy many fun activities specially set up for them on the race ground. There will be food trucks, entertainment, CPR demonstration and practice session and many more. Bring along your family and let everybody learns CPR.

It is one of the easiest things you can learn to make a true difference in another person’s life.

Why learn CPR?
In emergency situations, CPR is truly a lifesaving skill. Often than not we hear people suddenly collapse and die in public or during sports events such as soccer, badminton, running (marathon) etc. During cardiac arrest, the heart goes into an electrical storm and malfunction leading to arrhythmia. When this happened, there will be no blood flow and no oxygen supply to the brain, heart, lungs and other vital organ . The longer the person goes without oxygen, the more severe the damage, and death may ensue.

Almost 90% of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients die. At this instance, immediate CPR from a bystander or someone nearby may increase by double or triple the chance of survival. CPR help to push blood and oxygen to the brain and reactivates the heart. Therefore, knowing CPR and performing it correctly can mean the difference between life and death. Cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere. Join us! You can make a difference.
