Walk to END EPILEPSY 2020 - Greater Los Angeles
Join us on March 22, 2020
The Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Los Angeles has been continously monitoring and following guidance from the CDC, State Health Experts, and Government Agencies on COVID-19 (coronavirus). The health and well-being our community is something that we take seriously. In light of recent developments with the updated policy by the California Department of Public Health and recommendations issued by the California Governor, we have decided the best course of action is to postpone our Walk to END EPILEPSY®.
We are sorry we will not see you on March 22nd. We know how much our amazing Team Captains, Walk Participants, Generous Donors, Sponsors, Vendors, and Volunteers have been excited for the Walk. GOOD NEWS! We will be rescheduling the Walk to END EPILEPSY® for a later date and will be following up with you very soon!
We STILL Need YOU in this Fight to END EPILEPSY!
