Why We Walk:
“Our entire family walks as a team to fight epilepsy and to support Epilepsy Foundation New England in fighting epilepsy. Our adult son has had epilepsy for over 30 years and his seizures are still not controlled. We pray that someday there will be a solution.”
Let’s walk to Make Epilepsy History! Make a difference now by donating to a team member and then join us on May 16th to walk as one community.
Lunch will be provided for all registered participants!
We’ll be featuring face painters, games for the kids, information about the ketogenic diet, information from many vendors, and plenty more!
