Nick of Time Foundation
The Nick of Time Foundation is dedicated to educating schools, athletes, families, and communities about Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) and death in young people.
Nick of Time provides an array of programs to foster an awareness of SCA and help lessen its hidden potential to strike children and young adults at any time.
On average, a seemingly healthy young person suffers a sudden cardiac arrest every three days in the US and it’s the leading cause of death in exercising young athletes. In most cases of sudden cardiac arrest, cardiac abnormalities are not detected, there are no warning signs, and unless a normal heart rhythm is restored within minutes, death is the end result.
The Nick of Time Foundation facilitates youth heart screenings, helps to provide program resources for public access defibrillator programs and teaches the importance of early bystander CPR/AED education and awareness, in an effort to provide “Heart Safe Zones” in our communities.
Nick of Time also works to educate and empower students, parents, coaches and members of the community in an effort to help reduce and prevent sudden cardiac arrest.
