THE STORY:

Imagine a world where your child is healthy and happy, free of medication and doctor visits, and able to participate in all of life’s adventures.  This is a world I wish for my child.  My motivation for participating in the 36th Marine Corps Marathon run is a special 13 year old boy named Ethan.  My son Ethan was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of 3 after the onset of complex partial seizures. He has spent almost all of his young life in and out of doctors’ offices, going through neurological procedures, undergoing trials and error with medication attempting to see which will work. The objective of these continues to be the suppression of his seizures.  These debilitating episodes have limited the activities he’s allowed to engage in, they create fear and stress, and become an all-encompassing daily factor.   My intent is to meet my $1,200 goal for the Epilepsy Foundation, and hope that through donations for research and development from events such as these, one day my son won’t have to stand on the side lines but can actively engage in life without restriction.

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.

No donation is too small, and all contributions are very gratefully appreciated.

Thank you,

Erinn
