Community Engagement 2020

Bray Lakers – 24 Hours of CPR 

From 8am Saturday until 8am Sunday, all of our Survive & Save swimmers banded together to raise money for a local charity, Bray Lakers. Each group of four/five volunteers did half hour shifts through the whole day and night. While not on the manakin mat, they were teaching adult, child, and infant CPR and infant choking to the public. They also held a large raffle with amazing prizes to raise as much as possible. In total, we raised over €4,000.
