Heart of the Neighbourhood
Greg Page of The Wiggles is on a mission to set a new world record and save some lives in the process. The beloved ‘yellow Wiggle’ suffered a cardiac arrest on stage earlier this year while performing a bushfire relief concert with The Wiggles. The survival rate for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is just 10%, and Page has teamed up with some celebrity friends, Surf Live Saving NSW and online neighbourhood club Nextdoor to try and break the world record for the most people trained in CPR and AED (Automated External Defibrillation) in one virtual class. The Aussie neighbourhood with the most registered attendees will win a song about their neighbourhood composed by Page, a free AED for their area and a celebration thrown by Nextdoor.
