Our Services & Programs
The Peyton Walker Foundation, is one of the country’s prominent heart screening advocates and leaders in providing CPR and AED training and equipment donations. At The Peyton Walker Foundation we aim to educate parents and students about the prevalence of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) and the importance of Electrocardiogram (EKG) testing of youth.
We work with area healthcare partners to provide free heart screenings to students in the Central PA area several times per year.
The Peyton Walker Foundation donates Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) to various community organizations, schools, athletic clubs and police departments.
CPR & AED Training
We provide CPR & AED Certification Training classes to community members several times per year.
The Foundation awards multiple scholarships each year to students who are pursuing careers in healthcare.
Peyton was a true adventure-seeker and absolutely loved and embraced the outdoors. She enjoyed snowboarding, rock climbing, hiking, 4-wheeling in her Jeep Wrangler, and anything that involved adventure.
Peyton never allowed her heart condition to limit her lifestyle or define who she was. She lived life in a manner that most would envy – full of energy and passion, never missing an opportunity to share a laugh or give a hug to someone who needed it. Peyton was fully dedicated and looking forward to working in the healthcare field upon completion of her PA studies at King’s College.
