The Walk to End Epilepsy is for a serious cause -- to increase awareness about epilepsy, rally together, and raise money to continue our fight to END EPILEPSY. Walk to End Epilepsy is also a fun family day complete with resource fair, food, games, and prizes. This fund raising and awareness raising event brings together a large cross-section of constituents, representing our 50+ years of commitment to people with epilepsy and their families. Walkers include those living with seizures and their caregivers; doctors, nurses and other health care professionals; government leaders; Foundation staff and volunteers; corporate walking teams; celebrities committed to the cause; Foundation business partners and, of course, members of the general public who want to join the fight to END EPILEPSY.
