Campus Programs – Heart Club
JTB Heart Club
A JTB Heart Club is a campus chapter of the JTB Foundation, a non-profit foundation established to prevent sudden cardiac death. The Foundation is named in honor of John Taylor Babbitt who died at age 16 when his heart stopped during a basketball game at his church gym.
A JTB Heart Club is founded, organized, and run by students on a high school or college campus. The club contributes to the foundation mission by focusing on four goals: Advocacy, Education, Defibrillators and Fundraising. A campus club should also have an adviser from the faculty or administration according to the school’s policy.
Currently, there are JTB Heart Clubs – 3 schools:
- Chatham High School, Chatham NJ
- The Pingry School – Basking Ridge NJ
- Fairfield University – Fairfield CT
