AHA’s “Feast in the Field” honors volunteers and community

JACKSON, Tenn. — The American Heart Association hosted its inaugural “Feast in the Field,” Tuesday evening.

The dinner at the Casey Jones Village was to recognize volunteers who donate time and funds to the association.  However, it also served as a time for the American Heart Association to give back to the community.

During the event, AHA announced it is gifting CPR training kids to every public and private high school in Jackson-Madison County.

“There is data and statistics that show knowing CPR saves lives,” said Christy Futrell, Regional Director of AHA.  “We want to make sure everyone in the community knows and the best thing to do is start teaching our children.”

Statistics show heart disease is America’s number one killer, claiming more lives than all cancers combined.
