FAST Run is a sporting event for primary and high school students. Fast Run examines both speed and knowledge of stroke and heart attack. The race ran in May 2016, taking place very close to World Stroke Day, in Luzanky Park in Brno. Competitors perform tasks related to how to respond to a stroke or heart attack to see whether they can save a life. Why FAST Run? The name is derived from the mnemonic tool for recognizing the symptoms of stroke and is based on Face, Arm, Speech, Time. FAST. If you see someone having a stroke you must act FAST!
The event is organized in cooperation with the Medical Emergency Service of Souht Moravien region, the Fire Brigade of Brno, the Cardiovision 2030 program and the Lužánky Center.
Next event is coming in May 2019.
