Tomball Regional Health Foundation Is Committed To Building A Culture Of Health By Donating $86,000 Towards The Purchase Of CPR Anytime Kits For Tomball And Surrounding Areas

TOMBALL (July 20, 2017) – Tomball Regional Health Foundation (TRHF) is pleased to purchase 3,000 CPR Anytime Kits for American Heart Association to train community members in Tomball and surrounding communities.

In 2016, Tomball Regional Health Foundation awarded AHA $89,906 placing 128 CPR in Schools Training Kits and 100 CPR Anytime Kits in six nearby school districts and one private high school. Not only did this award help local schools meet the state requirement for students to be trained in quality CPR, more than 25,000 students were trained, joining the next generation of lifesavers.
