2016 ITL Walk Overview

Welcome to our page for the Into the Light Walk for Epilepsy! This past year although an exciting year due to the new addition to our family, has also been a nerve wrecking emotional roller-coaster filled with numerous doctor visits to ultimately find that our little firecracker Aiden has epilepsy. He is a fighter and I know he is resilient enough to keep moving forward. We will continue to fight this horrible disease and stand strong together as we find a way to control this.

We will be joining this great cause that is now dear to us and participating in Aiden's honor, the 5th Annual 'Into the Light' Walk for Epilepsy 2016. We would love for you to register to join our team (Team Aiden) and join us on this beautiful day to walk with us or if you cannot make it please consider a donation thru our page which will go directly to this organization to help fund programs for those affected by this disease.

 

In the following information you’ll learn the essentials about the Walk, along with links to registration and other pertinent matters. Please check back regularly to keep abreast of new exciting developments!
