4th Annual Seize the Moment 5K Fun Run/Walk
Every 4 minutes, someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with epilepsy. In the time it takes to read this, – someone will hear the words, “You have a seizure disorder…you have epilepsy.” Epilepsy affects all aspects of a person's life. Learning to cope with and manage epilepsy takes a coordinated effort by family, friends, teachers, and the community. The Epilepsy Foundation Central & South Texas (EFCST) was founded in 1993 to improve the quality of life of the over 130,000 adults and children with epilepsy in 79 Central and South Texas counties. All of EFCST's programs are designed to help people reach their full potential and to enhance their sense of self worth.

We need your support to continue our mission. Your tax-deductible donation or registration will:

  • Educate a classroom of first graders about seizures and helping their classmate
  • Provide emergency medications to the person that can’t afford medications this month
  • Inform Legislators about the need to continue to fund epilepsy research and education
  • Lift up and support the 17 year old that feels he is alone in this world
  • Empower a parent to advocate for their child by teaching them to find their voice
  • Prepare Nurses, EMTs, & Police Officers to “do no harm” by adequately recognizing seizures
  • Support young adults with social activities to alleviate their fears of meeting new people
  • Yield & cultivate young leaders to advocate on Capitol Hill on behalf of youth with epilepsy.

    These are just a handful of the activities and supportive services your donation will provide. ANY ONE at ANY AGE at ANY TIME can begin having seizures. Seizures rob people a “moment” at a time, but over time they add up. Remember to give thanks for the advancements in epilepsy treatment. We must continue to work to achieve our goal of “Not Another Moment Lost to Seizures”.
