On May 19th, though the day was a bit wet, more than 300 friends and family participated in the 7th annual WALK WITH HEART. Over $55,000.00 was raised to support our mission to prevent sudden cardiac death. It was a wonderful celebration of John's life and we are so thankful for all the love, generosity and support shown to us and the Foundation. 
 
All participants received an event t-shirt as well as complimentary food and beverages. Music, a raffle, and wonderful prizes made the event fun for all ages. In fact, this year our raffle broke all previous records! In addition, representatives from Atlantic Health and V.E. Ralph were present at the Walk to demonstrate the use of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs).

The Walk with Heart is sponsored by the JTB Foundation and organized by students in the Pingry School's JTB Heart Club as part of their Independent Senior Project at The Pingry School in Martinsville. The day included a 3-mile walk, raffle, music, food, and prizes. The students spent countless hours over the last half year planning every aspect of the event. This year, we recognized a large contingent of Pingry graduates in attendance, who had run the WALK themselves in previous years.
