Nonprofit to teach CPR, defibrillator use

Forever 9 — The Robbie Levine Foundation will teach adults to save lives using cardiopulmonary resuscitation and an automated external defibrillator during a training program in North Merrick.

The CPR and AED event, hosted by the Community Parent Center, the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District and Nassau Legis. Dave Denenberg (D-Merrick), will be held on Tuesday at 7 p.m., in the Brookside School Boardroom, at 1260 Meadowbrook Rd. in North Merrick.

Robbie Levine, 9, of Merrick, died of cardiac failure during a Little League practice in 2005. That same year, his parents, Jill and Craig Levine, created Forever 9 — The Robbie Levine Foundation in his honor.

The nonprofit raises money to purchase defibrillators and provide CPR training for schools and youth sports groups throughout Long Island and New York City.
