 Registration for the 2018 Walks for Epilepsy is now open!

Many of you have participated in the annual Summer Stroll for Epilepsy, previously held in Fairmount Park in Chestnut Hill, PA. With each year that we’ve grown and welcomed more walkers, we have listened to your feedback and decided it was time to expand our footprint!  We are now proud to offer three Walk for Epilepsy events in Eastern PA. Together, these events will cover nearly 10 miles—hence our decision to name them the Walks for Epilepsy. As always, these walks are free and open to the public.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Walks for Epilepsy Pennsylvania in 2017! It is an incredible experience to partner with you to host 3 walks throughout the area to raise awareness and funds for epilepsy in Philadelphia, the Lehigh Valley and Northeastern PA.

We are grateful to recognize the following partners as 2018 Walk Series Sponsors: Eisai, Livanova – VNS TherapySunovionSupernus, and UCB. Thank you for your dedication to the epilepsy community!
