The Marlins Foundation is pleased to announce the second cycle of Compression for Life, a program that teaches heart health and provides CPR and first aid training to the youth at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami Dade.

In 2012, the Marlins Foundation and Catcher Jeff Urgelles launched a CPR class for the kids at the Boys and Girls Club of Miami Dade. This program was inspired by news of Urgelles’ vital role in saving the life of a young woman who had collapsed with cardiac arrest during a Marlins away game in Arizona.

“The Compression for Life Program helps our kids understand and learn the importance of CPR.” shares Alex Rodriguez-Roig, President of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami Dade. “We’re thankful to Jeff and the Marlins for helping make our community a safer and healthier place.”

During the first year of the program, Compression for Life taught the importance of heart health to over 100 youth at the Boys & Girls Club Hank Kline Campus, and provided CPR certification for twenty Boys & Girls Clubs employees. This year, the program will continue with additional support from the local American Heart Association and 911 Education Consultants to offer Compression for Life at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami Dade Kendall Campus.
