BENEFITING: Epilepsy Foundation of Metropolitan New York
ORGANIZER: Epilepsy Foundation of Metropolitan New York
EVENT DATE: Mar 19, 2017
As many of you know, when my daughter Caroline was 12, she contracted encephalitis. The encephalitis left her with a traumatic brain injury and epilepsy. Sadly, almost 13 years later, Caroline still battles epilepsy. She continues to have seizures weekly and sometimes daily. As a parent, it's a hopeless feeling not being able to help your child. I've decided to run this race in honor of Caroline and her struggle. The effort it will take to train for this half marathon is nothing compared to the struggle she faces everyday. Epilepsy Foundations across the country help effected families face every day challenges and lead the fight to find a cure - in hopes of one day making epilepsy a thing of the past. Please consider supporting this effort.
