THE STORY:

I will be competing in the Michigan Championship Triathlon on September 6, 2015 in Belle Isle, Detroit. I want to help the Epilepsy Foundation raise awareness about epilepsy as well as to support epilepsy-related services, education, advocacy, and research. As you may know, I was diagnosed with epilepsy when 5 years ago when I was 10 years old. It was very scary at first, and I did not tell anyone for a very long time that I have epilepsy. I endure many hours of doctors appointments and testing each year, and I take medication twice a day to control my epilepsy. I am also an honor student, an athlete, a volunteer and a teenager. I live and I live with epilepsy! Epilepsy is quite common, affecting 1 in 26 people, and yet there is not enough funding for more research, and it is often misconceived. I am dedicated to helping those living with epilepsy, and those who are affected by it. My goal is to raise $1000 for the Epilepsy Foundation, and I can't do it without your help. Please donate generously so that we can all TRIumph over Epilepsy! <3 Kathryn
