Students in Wyoming Seminary Lower School’s seventh and eighth grades recently raised more than $1,260 during the Fourth Annual Wyoming Seminary CPR-A-Thon.

Ninety-five students worked in teams of five to seven members to perform CPR on 13 mannequins during the event, which lasted about one hour.

\They competed to see which individual student raised the most money, which team raised the most money and which team had the best-dressed mannequin. All proceeds benefitted Boston Strong.

Lower School students in seventh and eighth grades learn first aid and CPR as part of their health classes.
