The Summer Stroll is Finally Here!
June 20, 2014: The 18th Annual Summer Stroll for Epilepsy is almost here! We have been astounded by all of your efforts and are so appreciative of your dedication to raising awareness and funds for those with epilepsy. You can still register up until 2:00 pm TODAY, Friday June 20. People who do not register on the website can still register at the “Day Of” TABLE.
Below you’ll find all the details you’ll need for a great Summer Stroll!
Saturday Registration Details (begins at 8:00am)
Walking as an Individual?
Please check in at the “Individual” table. You can hand in any additional money you collected there.
Walking as part of a Team?
Lucky You! You DO NOT NEED TO CHECK IN with the Team Registration table. Only the Team Captains need to check in. Instead, contact your team captain to see where your team will be gathering. If you have collected any additional donations please give them to your Team Captain. Then, enjoy the morning before the Stroll starts!
Are you a Team Captain?
Only Team Captains or parents of Team Captains should check in. You will be the representative for your entire team. We highly suggest that you set a meeting place for your team members at the walk to collect any additional donations and to see if you have any Day Of registrants prior to checking in.
Once you have this information, the Team Captain can go to the Team Registration table. When you check in, please know:
- The total amount of cash and checks you will be handing in
- The total amount of money you collected online
- The total number of team members
This information will be verified at registration.
Teams with at least 5 members are eligible for a Team Captain giveaway! These Team Captains can pick up their “Swag” at registration. Only one gift per team.
Additional Details about the Stroll:
Participants who have raised over $50 are eligible for a t-shirt. For Teams we calculate eligibility based on team totals. Due to a limited supply of t-shirts, we can only give out one t-shirt per qualified participant. Sizes are limited as well, so get there early if you want a specific size!
If you or a team member has epilepsy, we’d like to honor you! In spirit of our theme this year, “Who Do You Stroll For” we have purple bandanas that individuals with epilepsy can choose to wear at the Stroll. Additionally, Pond, Lehocky, Stern, Giordano, our Epilepsy Partnership Sponsor, will be handing out a gift to those with epilepsy. Because we have a limited amount of the bandanas & gifts please be considerate and only collect one if you are a person with epilepsy.
Overflow parking from Northwestern Ave is available at the CHESTNUT HILL COLLEGE LOT. You can walk up Northwestern Ave to the Stroll site. We strongly encourage carpooling to the Summer Stroll as parking will be limited and we must share parking with others not participating in the event.
Summer Stroll is Rain or Shine, so please keep an eye on the weather and come prepared. Likewise, because we have a limited supply of bottled water and food we encourage you to bring your own water bottles as well as any snacks or food you may want.
