Strides Against Seizures 5k Run/Walk

Join us as we lace up our running shoes to make Strides Against Seizures!

On October 6, 2019 we will run and walk for the 1 in 26 who will be diagnosed with epilepsy in their lifetime. Join fellow Epilepsy Warriors for the EFEPA’s Strides Against Seizures 5K circling iconic Fairmount Park to raise awareness and critical funds for our local epilepsy community.

There isn’t just one reason to run…there’s 110,000! Epilepsy affects over 110,000 families and individuals in eastern Pennsylvania alone. By joining the race you’re joining the fight against seizures and helping us take strides to find a cure.

You don’t want to miss this 5K Run/Walk featuring live music, pre-race warm-up & stretch, professional announcers, special EFEPA event swag, and finisher medals.

Not a runner? Not a problem! Go at your own pace walk, skip, stroll and make Strides Against Seizures alongside fellow Epilepsy Warriors!
