Welcome to the Joshua Caruso Foundation

In August 2013, Joshua Caruso died suddenly of an undiagnosed heart condition. He was on his way to school when his heart stopped and he died instantly.

Josh was living with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). HCM is the most common cause of heart-related sudden death in young people, yet little is known about the condition. Very few people are even aware of it, making detection and prevention very difficult. Josh and his family were completely unaware of the condition, until it was too late.

Established by Joe and Belinda Caruso in Josh’s memory, the Joshua Caruso Foundation aims to raise money and awareness to combat HCM. Joe and Belinda hope that through the Foundation’s work they can prevent other parents from suffering the same tragedy that they did.

On Tuesday our most celebrated day of the year will take place. It is the belated birthday celebration of Josh Caruso. Son of Joe and Belinda and Brother to Bayley and Nicholas. All of them have been apart of our family at #crossfithorizons for a number of years. On Tuesday, as many of you who have been with us a while know, we perform the #joshcaruso workout in Josh's memory. Josh left this world suddenly in August 2013 when the undiagnosed heart condition he had (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy) tragically took his life while walking to school. Aged 13. On Tuesday we ask that you come and celebrate Josh's life by doing his workout with us and then donate to the foundation his Mum and Dad established to raise money and create awareness for the most common cause of heart related sudden death in young people. So please dig deep in the workout and then into your pockets for this Dear and special family. #forjosh #crossfithorizons #joshcarusofoundation
