Get to Know Us
A Word About Us
The Heroes Foundation NJ was established after a sudden cardiac arrest event took place in the life of our Founder Pepi Dragotta. We have three basic goals:
1. To promote awareness of sudden cardiac arrest. To encourage people to take action and take care of themselves for a better quality life.
2. To raise funds and donate AEDs and CPR training to local community sport complexes, so that in an event such as the one experienced with Pepi, lifesaving help can be administered immediately.
3. To remember the people who were instrumental in saving Pepi’s life. The Heroes Foundation will have a scholarship program for two students graduating from CCTEC to further a career in the healthcare field. By doing this, the memory and cause lives on.

What We Do
Provide AEDs & Training
One at a Time
Heroes Foundation NJ is committed to raise funds and donate AEDs and CPR training to local community sport complexes, so that lifesaving help can be administered immediately.
Since February 20, 2016 when Heroes was founded, funds have been donated to supply a total of 70 AEDs that will be distributed to local community fields throughout Cumberland, Salem, Gloucester, Ocean, Camden and Burlington Counties. This is only the beginning of a mission to save lives.
Support the Next Generation of Lifesavers
To remember the people who were instrumental in saving Pepi’s life. The Heroes Foundation has a scholarship program, to offer a scholarship to a senior graduating from a South Jersey high school who has chosen to pursue a career in the healthcare field. Since 2016, Heroes Scholarship has donated a total over $13,000 of scholarship money to deserving young men and women.
