Providing education and awareness of the need for CPR training, medical pre-screening and on-site AED accessibility with a special emphasis on youth and high school athletic programs.
Darius Jones Foundation
Darius Jones suffered Sudden Cardiac Arrest while competing in a youth basketball game on October 11, 2009. He was just 15 years old. The Darius Jones Foundation provides hope and preventive assistance to athletes and families that could be confronted with this same tragic situation. We are inspired and driven by the words of his mother, Beverly Bradley who said; "I want to make sure that a parent never feels as helpless as I did that day."
