It is because of the determination and dedication of our Epilepsy Warriors that we know that our postponed Walk this year will be the most amazing one yet. We will be announcing our new November walk date very soon.

We encourage you to continue engaging and recruiting for your Walk Teams! And to continue your fundraising efforts! We are still aiming to reach $600,000 by our new November Walk date (date announcement coming soon) so that we can continue to fund medical research, provide education, advocate, and expand our local programming.
