ENOLA, Pa. (WHTM) – Peyton Walker was studying to be a physician assistant at Kings College when she passed away from sudden cardiac arrest in 2013.
Her dream was to help others, and through her foundation, she is helping people stay heart healthy
Linsa Schneider is the coordinator of the Peyton Walker Foundation. She says the mission stays the same.
“We want to raise awareness of sudden cardiac arrest,” Schneider said. “We want to increase survival rates through education and training.”
Thursday night, the foundation donated an automatic external defibrillator, also known as an AED, to the district. It will be used for sports teams and it will be taken along to away games.
The foundation has given away 21 AEDs and has set up more than 800 heart screenings over the years.
