Save a Life with Hands-Only CPR

On race weekend the Houston Marathon Committee coordinates medical coverage along the course and at the George R. Brown Convention Center. Public safety officers, EMS, and over 500 medical volunteers make this one of the safest races in the country, but we still need your help. The partnership of our medical team, spectators and participants can create a broad safety net for all participants. This is especially important in the rare but real possibility of a cardiac arrest on the course. You can help bridge the gap between the time when a person has a cardiac arrest and when definitive medical help arrives. Hands-only CPR is that bridge. By watching this video, you will develop a better understanding of how hands-only CPR works.
