A ground-breaking health educational campaign aimed at raising awareness of stroke symptoms is being rolled out globally…

The aim? To recruit one million children from across the world to help save their Grandparents.

The FAST Heroes campaign is recruiting children between the ages of 5 and 9 years old to help spread the word about the signs of stroke.

The campaign includes fun educational resources that teach kids important practical, and possibly life-saving skills.

Join the World Record Attempt to raise awareness of stroke symptoms

To help kick-start this inspirational campaign and encourage international participation, children and their families are being invited to upload photos of themselves wearing a superhero mask, with a view to creating a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for the largest online album of its kind.

What is the FAST Heroes programme?

  • The FAST Heroes programme can be delivered in schools or accessed online via a series of e-books, centres around animated characters – a group of retired superhero grandparents referred to as the FAST Heroes.
  • They teach children about the three key signs of stroke – a face that suddenly droops to one side, one arm that suddenly goes weak, or two lips that suddenly cannot form speech – as well as the importance of calling an ambulance on 112 immediately.
  • To help role model the desired behaviour, an animated film shows a young boy called Timmy becoming a FAST Hero by calling 112 when his grandpa has a stroke.
