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
