Hi all! My name is Yuannis Polemitis and my 5 year old daughter Victoria was diagnosed with uncontrolled epilepsy when she was 3 years old. Since then she has suffered over 400 seizures and countless hospital stays. Various doctors and numerous medications have not been able to control her condition. On July 16th, 2016 I am participating in the Spartan Race Super in Palmerton, Pennsylvania. I am running this race to promote epilepsy awareness and as a fundraiser to benefit the Epilepsy Foundation. My goal is to raise $2,500 to help further epilepsy research, advocacy, and epilepsy-related services.
Also, as a member of Athletes vs Epilepsy, I am raising funds to help find cures and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy.
Your donation will help fund innovation in accelerating new treatments and therapies in a time frame that matters. No donation is too big or too small, every dollar counts to the people living with epilepsy.
Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Athletes vs Epilepsy and help ensure that people with seizures have the opportunity to live their lives to their fullest potential!
