EVENT DATE: Sep 24, 2017
2017 ITL Walk Overview
We are taking part in the annual "Into the Light Walk for Epilepsy" in support of our son and warrior, Gavin. He was diagnosed with Epilepsy in June 2013 at 17 months old. We admire his strength and courage and value each day that Gavin is seizure free. This year has been a difficult journey as Gavin has had multiple seizures and has been diagnosed with a new type of seizure which has presented itself in the last few months. We thank all of our family and friends who have supported The Gavinators throughout the past few years and hope that you are able to join us in the walk or donate towards the fight against Epilepsy. "Courage, above all things, is the first quality of a warrior." ~ Carl von Clausewitz
