From the Darien News:
While setting a new world record for a mass CPR training would be great, the most important goal of the upcoming Hands for Life event will be to encourage people to help heart attack victims rather than do nothing, said Dr. Thomas Nero, a staff cardiologist at Stamford Hospital.
The underlying goal of the event to be held from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday will be to set a world record and train 10,000 people in the technique of hands-only CPR in one day. The current record was set in January 2011 by the Singapore Heart Association which trained 7,909 people in one day.
