Congratulations to our 2012 Epilpesy Road Warriors who were presented with the Mets Spirit Award at our 1st Annual Epilepsy Awareenss Day at Citi Field on July 22nd. This will be the second year that our Warriors will take to the streets to raise funds to support our Into the Light Programs for epilepsy awareness, education and empowerment.
Why do we run?
We run for the New York Metro Area's epilepsy community. We are a community of individuals and families affected by epilepsy, healthcare providers, advocates and industry partners. Together we'll go the distance until there is a cure.

I am doing this marathon not just to represent the students but also to help with my weight loss. The epilepsy medication caused a huge weight gain and I think that the marathon will help me continue to get to a healthier weight.
