CHESTER, Pa.–In conjunction with the Independence Blue Cross Foundation, Philadelphia Union announced the rescheduled date for their special Community CPR Awareness Event. The event, free of charge for all ages, takes place on Sunday, September 10 from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET at the Power Training Complex fields adjacent to Talen Energy Stadium. Parking is available in the B/VIP lot immediately alongside the Power Training Complex fields. Fans attending are encouraged to RSVP online by clicking here.

At the Community CPR Awareness Event, all are invited to attend and receive free Hands-Only CPR training by the Penn Mobile team and their Mobile CPR van. Sponsored by the IBC Foundation, the family-friendly event takes place with the goal in mind to provide people with proper CPR training and build awareness of this life-saving act. Union players Jack Elliott and Raymon Gaddis are also scheduled to appear at the event.

“We are delighted to partner with the IBC Foundation to host the Community CPR Awareness event this weekend,” said Jean-Paul Dardenne, Senior Vice President, Corporate Partnerships for Philadelphia Union. “This is a powerful and important initiative. CPR saves lives and we couldn’t be happier to help spread awareness along with the Foundation as well as provide proper training for the community here at the Philadelphia Union campus.”

The CPR training sessions (for ages 16 and up), conducted by the Mobile CPR Project, which the Foundation supports, last 30 minutes and will be held on the Power Training Complex fields. Food, entertainment and giveaways will be present at the event, as will U on Tour elements presented by the Philadelphia Union such as inflatables, tailgate games and soccer-specific activities.

The Union return to the pitch this weekend, Saturday, September 9 when they travel to the Twin Cities for the first time to take on expansion side Minnesota United FC (8:00 p.m. ET / TCN).
