Our son was diagnosed 3.5yrs ago with Frontal Lobe Epilepsy and we are still learning every day about helping him, finding answers and not letting epilepsy define him. I am not a runner but I have decided to take on this challenge to prove that I can do it, and that everyday there are challenges worth conquering! Please donate to this awesome cause and foundation. If I could make a soon to be 13yro give you a hug for your donation I would, but I have to tackle him to get my own hugs!
The Epilepsy Foundation is dedicated to making sure that people with epilepsy and seizures can experience all that life has to offer. Athletes vs. Epilepsy™ affirms this positive message and embodies it through action.
Athletes vs. Epilepsy is a nationwide program for athletes, coaches, volunteers and fans to raise awareness and money to help fund the Epilepsy Foundation's mission.
For our Athletes vs. Epilepsy, it’s about more than just the race, game, meet, etc. Each of our athletes also raise money and awareness on behalf of Epilepsy Foundation and our fight to stop seizures and SUDEP, find a cure and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy through efforts including education, advocacy and research to accelerate ideas into therapies.
