Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin has partnered with the American Heart Association to launch a CPR initiative. The goal of the safety and organization is to raise awareness and education about CPR. In the regular season, CPR saved the life of the Bills’ safety who collapsed on the field and was hospitalized after being struck in the chest on the field. When he launched his new initiative for CPR he challenged Tom Brady, Lebron James, and Michelle Obama to participate and help raise awareness. His new campaign is called “3 For HeartCPR Challenge”.
Teaming up with @american_heart in a BIG way!

Damar Hamlin said the following when announcing his new campaign: “As you know, CPR saved my life earlier this year on the field. And CPR could easily save your life or someone you love. That’s why I’m proud to announce that I’m partnering with the American Heart Association and kicking off Damar Hamlin’s Three for Heart CPR Challenge. And of course, this one has three steps. Step one, go to heart.org/3 to watch a short video to learn hands-only CPR. Step two, donate to the AHA to fund CPR awareness and education. And step three, challenge three friends to do the same.”
This campaign is Damar Hamlin’s way of raising awareness for CPR which saved his life after his heart stopped on the field. Hamlin has shown remarkable progress in his recovery and will hopefully continue impacting football and beyond.
