THE STORY:

I will be participating in the NYC marathon with the Athletes vs Epilepsy team on November 6th.  This will be my first marathon run and the challenge and training has been so awesome and humbling!  Our team's mission is to raise much needed funds and awareness for the Epilepsy Foundation.  My friend (sister-in-law & bridesmaid) Barbara Doyle died from SUDEP nine years ago this November.  Haven’t heard of it?  Most people haven’t.  SUDEP is the sudden, unexpected death of someone with epilepsy, who was otherwise healthy.  Each year, more than 1 out of 1,000 people with epilepsy die from SUDEP. Barbara was an ambitious traveler, an accomplished musician, a dedicated teacher and a great friend.  Her life was cut short by SUDEP at 30 years old.    As I prepare for my 26.2 mile journey through the five boroughs, please consider making a tax deductible donation to my run.  Support this amazing charity in their mission to accelerate therapies to stop seizures and SUDEP, find cures, and SAVE LIVES because every family devastated by SUDEP is one too many.  Thank you!  XOXO Margaret

Athletes vs. Epilepsy is a nationwide program for athletes of all ages and levels, coaches, volunteers and fans.  The goal is to raise awareness, build participation, and help fund the Epilepsy Foundation’s mission 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. The initiative helps to bring epilepsy awareness to all sports through participation by athletes of all ages and skill levels as well as their supportive friends, family, and fans

The Epilepsy Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that people with epilepsy can experience all that life has to offer. Athletes vs. Epilepsy affirms this positive message and embodies it through action and the belief that anyone, regardless of athletic talent, can help to fundraise and raise awareness.

YOU can make a difference in your life and in the lives of others. Donate to the cause through our team fundraising page or join the Athletes vs. Epilepsy initiative.  Visit AthletesVsEpilepsy.com for more information and opportunities to get involved.
