BENEFITING: Epilepsy Foundation of Metropolitan New York
ORGANIZER: Epilepsy Foundation of Metropolitan New York
EVENT DATE: Mar 19, 2017
This year, for the first year EVER, I have decided to train and run the NYC Half Marathon to raise money for Epilepsy. Almost 10 years ago I had my first seizure out of nowhere and it's 10 years later and I'm now attending college away from home which seemed like a big stretch 10 years ago, going for a business degree and working towards Graduate school. I have come a long way since my first seizure but I have never been taken off medications since then and I still can't drive because of my condition. To be able to go out and fundraise for something that has been in my life for so long and knowing that these funds can help so many other people as well and coming together could make such a difference would be so amazing.
