About the JBCHC
In the summer of 2013, Jordan Boyd was 16 years old and recently drafted to the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. While attending the hockey training camp of the Acadie-Bathurst Titan, Jordan’s life came to an unexpected end after he collapsed during warm up. It was later determined that Jordan had an undiagnosed heart condition called Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricle Cardiomyopathy (ARVC).
Not only was Jordan a talented hockey player, he was a kind-hearted individual who believed in giving back to the community. For such a young man, he demonstrated selflessness and compassion on and off the ice.
Jordan’s brother, Greg, along with his family and the support of his community, grew this event to celebrate Jordan’s life, make an impact on heart health research and treatment initiatives in Atlantic Canada, and to give the community and participants a day to remember. One hundred per cent of net proceeds will help prevent sudden death from cardiac arrest through the QEII’s Inherited Heart Disease Clinic and create awareness through the Jordan Boyd Foundation.
