How You Can Get Involved

We work with area healthcare partners to provide free heart screenings to students in the Central PA area several times per year.​

AED Donations

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.

Meet Peyton

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.
