Our Mission: To provide research funding to study, predict and prevent sudden cardiac arrest among athletes.

Making an Impact

Heart of Athletes Study

The Heart of Athletes Study’s purpose it to evaluate the presence of heart injury in athletes who have tested positive for COVID-19.  The research will standardize cardiovascular evaluations of NCAA athletes to understand long-term implications from COVID-19.  This will also create a platform for Athlete’s Hearts Imaging – for sudden cardiac death and other conditions.  The Joel Cornette Foundation pledged an initial grant of $250,000 to support the study and committed resources to raise awareness and financial support.  

Outcomes Registry for Cardiac Conditions in Athletes

The Joel Cornette Foundation has partnered with ORCCA (Outcomes Registry for Cardiac Conditions in Athletes) to provide research funding aimed at monitoring clinical outcomes in athletes diagnosed with cardiac conditions at risk for sudden death.
