The “Damar Hamlin 3 for Heart Challenge” aims to teach people how to perform hands-only CPR.

As EUR previously reported, Hamiln, 24, had to be resuscitated twice after going into cardiac arrest on Jan. 2 at Paycor Stadium against the Cincinnati Bengals during Monday Night Football. He collapsed on the field in the first quarter after suffering an injury from an open field tackle of Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins. Hamlin was administered CPR before being transported in an ambulance to a nearby hospital in critical condition. 

Hamlin was hospitalized at UC Medical Center and released after nine days. He has since been providing fans and supporters with updates about this health.

“I can’t tell you how appreciative I am of all the love, all the support and everything that’s just been coming in my way,” Hamlin said in a video.
