Powerful Athletic Partnerships During COVID-19

Working together to make New Jersey healthier 

At RWJBarnabas Health (RWJBH), we have always been committed to meaningful partnerships with organizations that share our vision to create healthier communities. Their efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic, however, have taken their support to a whole new level. “We asked our partners to help us in several ways—through donations, through disseminating educational information and through support for our frontline healthcare heroes,” says Justin Edelman, Senior Vice President, Corporate Partnerships, RWJBH.

“The response was beyond what we ever could have imagined.” Our corporate partners had our back. New Jersey Devils/Prudential Center provided a significant and impactful monetary donation in addition to protective equipment and more than 10,000 tickets to future events for our healthcare heroes.

Rutgers University Athletics donated protective equipment and used its reach on social media to educate our communities on important safety tips, while the Somerset Patriots raised funds through online memorabilia auctions, merchandise sales and a pop-up food truck event. Too numerous to mention, the supportive efforts from so many of RWJBH’s partners (see list at right) have been crucial to our mission.

On behalf of RWJBH and all of our partner organizations, we wish you good health and good fortune at all times. Together, we’ll be there for you.
