KINGSTON, Jamaica — St Jago High School on Saturday received a defibrillator from Dr Michael Morgan, the JAH JAH Foundation and Columbia University (Paediatric Oncology) at Team Jamaica Bickle (TBJ) Penn Relays awards ceremony held in Philadelphia.

It was presented to the principal of the Spanish Town high school.

The machine was handed over in honour of Kavaughn ‘Jaguar’ McKenzie, the St Jago runner who died while representing Jamaica at the NACAC Cross country championships in Tobago in February.

The defibrillator, used to revive patients with a heart condition, is the first of many that TJB plans to present to schools across the island. Plans for training in the equipment’s use are also being scheduled.

The JAH JAH (Jamaicans Abroad Helping Jamaicans at home) Foundation will team with TJB in the project.
