Cardiac on Campus was founded in 2016 after the untimely passing of Jon Derynda, a 20-year-old UW-Oshkosh student. His sister, Brittany, and cousin, Jessica Miller, were students at UW-Madison at the time. They wanted to intentionally reach out to younger individuals who do not normally view themselves as at-risk for sudden cardiac death. We started small and quickly grew, offering free CPR certification courses, placing AEDs in dorm buildings, and establishing the Red Tutu Trot. Six years later, we have placed 11 AEDs, performed over 150 EKG screenings, and certified over 1,500 people in CPR.
Racing Towards a Safer Community
For 90% of its victims, sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is fatal. Increasing bystander CPR and AED knowledge while also offering preventive care, like electrocardiogram (EKG) screenings, is our best solution for lowering this grim statistic. Help Cardiac on Campus raise money for our initiatives and awareness about SCA! Thank you for your time and support!
