THE STORY:

I am running the 2016 New York City Marathon as a member of Athletes vs. Epilepsy. I could not be more proud to run this year for a charity that will raise both financial support and awareness on behalf of the Epilepsy Foundation of America, as this is a cause extremely close to my heart. My mom, Grace, is an epileptic and suffered numerous grand mal seizures in her 20s and 30s. However, through many courses of treatment and experimental medications, she has been seizure-free for over 20 years. 

It is through ongoing research and funding to organizations like the Epilepsy Foundation that my mom and others like her have been given the opportunity to live a healthy life! I encourage you to please donate to this very special cause and give others the same chance.

See you at the finish line! #TakeEveryStepWithGrace

About Athletes vs. Epilepsy

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.
