Why You Should Run
Cardiac on Campus is a UW-Madison student org that was founded in 2016 after student Brittany Derynda’s 20-year-old brother passed away from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) following a half marathon. The organization attempts to shed light on SCA prevention and cardiac health as a whole. For 90% of its victims, SCA is fatal. Increasing bystander CPR and AED knowledge is our best solution for lowering this grim statistic. Help Cardiac on Campus raise awareness about SCA and funds to put on free CPR and AED certification classes! Thanks for your time and support!
