THE STORY:

2017 ITL Walk Overview

 

Welcome to our page for the Into the Light Walk for Epilepsy! 2015 although an exciting year due to the new addition to our family, was also a nerve wrecking emotional roller-coaster filled with numerous doctor visits to ultimately find that our little firecracker Aiden had epilepsy. He is a fighter and we know he is resilient enough to keep moving forward. We faught hard and stood strong together and we have thankfully gotten this disease under control. Praise God, AIden has been seizure free for a year and we will continue to push thru to see where this journey takes us, as we are every day grateful of where we are.

We will be walking again this year for this great cause that is now dear to us and participating in Aiden's honor, the 6th Annual 'Into the Light' Walk for Epilepsy 2017. 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. We hope to have a great turn out again!!!
