After suffering cardiac arrest, Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin is teaming up with the American Heart Association to promote CPR training.

Hamlin cited how CPR saved his life last month when he collapsed on the field. It’s called the “Damar Hamlin 3 for Heart Challenge.”

The steps are:

  1. Go to heart.org/3 and watch a video that teaches people how to administer hands-on CPR
  2. Donate to the AHA to fund CPR education and training
  3. Share the challenge with three people by tagging them with the hashtag #3forHeart

Hamlin tagged former First Lady Michelle Obama, now-former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady and Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James.

“Excited to be teaming up with @american_heart in a BIG way!” Hamlin wrote to his followers on social media.

“I want to thank everybody for the love and support over these past few weeks. As you know, CPR saved my life earlier this year on the field and CPR could easily save your life or someone you love.”
