The Alyssa Dressler Foundation’s main objective is to offer FREE heart screenings and cardiovascular-related education to Pennsylvania’s youth, and we are striving to put this plan into action in every day. It is our belief that through offering these preventative services, it gives us the opportunity to contribute towards saving a young person’s life and make an impactful difference to their future.
In coordination with JKNL Stables, The Alyssa Dressler Memorial Barrel Race is held annually in April as a fun way for the community to get involved with our foundation’s cause while paying tribute to Alyssa through one of her most favorite activities. Complete with live barrel racing competitions, food stand with delicious homemade treats, and a wide array of ticket raffling prizes, it’s an event you really don’t want to miss!
A majority of heart-related incidences have been reported to occur in children while engaged in sports-related activities, exercise, and play. That’s why The Alyssa Dressler Foundation has implemented an AED Donation Program to help provide lifesaving equipment to the community’s parks, schools and sporting events. If you would like to make a suggestion as where an AED device should be given, please contact us with details.
