About 800 women learnt how to carry out cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) yesterday morning. After the CPR lesson, they took part in a mass Zumba dance party at ITE College Central in Ang Mo Kio, led by People's Association (PA) trainers. The event to celebrate National Day was put together by various PA groups to encourage women to lead an active lifestyle and forge bonds. Senior Minister of State for Health and Manpower Amy Khor, Minister in the Prime Minister's Office Grace Fu and Sembawang GRC MP Ellen Lee joined the women in setting a national record for the largest SG50 logo. The 3m by 3m logo was made with 1,000 lip prints contributed by women as symbols of their love and well wishes for Singapore.
