2017 ITL Walk Overview
Welcome to our page for the Into the Light Walk for Epilepsy!
* On February 3, 2016 our friend and colleague Tish lost her son Justin Landis to Epilepsy. At the young age of 22, Justin was an accomplished musician (drummer & keyboardist), had his Associates degree in Music Technology and was pursuing a BS in Audio Engineering at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. Self-motivated, he had a production company, JP Productions and was on his way to making his dreams come true. Justin was a kind soul, filling everyones life with love, laughter and music. We as a company would like to honor him by raising money and awareness and plan to walk together on September 24th in support of EFMNY. Your support to this cause is greatly appreciated!
EFMNY would like to thank all those returning Teams and Individuals and would like to welcome those of you who are new. It is their goal to make this year’s Walk their most successful yet!
