Walk to END EPILEPSY–Pennsylvania Series

NEPA | Lehigh Valley | Philadelphia | Lancaster

Last year, the Walk series welcomed over 3,000 Epilepsy Champions from across our 18-county service area including individuals living with epilepsy, family, friends, medical and healthcare professionals, business leaders, pharmaceutical and medical device companies as well as general community supporters.

This year, the EFEPA is proud to once again be part of the Epilepsy Foundation’s nationwide Walk to END EPILEPSY! From the East Coast to the West Coast, members of the epilepsy community are uniting with a shared vision. We invite you to join the movement to END EPILEPSY and the many challenges associated with this diagnosis.

There are 3.4 million people in the United States living with active epilepsy and an estimated 110,000 people in eastern PA.

By participating in the Walk to END EPILEPSY – Pennsylvania Series you are not only uniting with people across the nation but igniting a spark right in your own backyard. The Walks are non-competitive, family-friendly, and open to the public. They are designed to be a fun day of celebration all while raising critical funds and awareness for the EFEPA and the local epilepsy community. Each Walk is complete with music, food, entertainment, networking, giveaways and prizes. The Walks are free to register with fundraising strongly encouraged. As always, all proceeds will support the free programs and services provided here in Pennsylvania.

We walk so no one feels alone in their diagnosis. We walk so kids can attend Camp. We walk to build seizure-safe communities. We Walk to END EPILEPSY.

Together we can make a difference…

Thank you to our community for helping us grow during our years as members of the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community. In 2019, because of that growth, we launched the first stand-alone Walk to END EPILEPSY in the Lehigh Valley.

The EFEPA is proud to once again host the Walk to END EPILEPSY – Lehigh Valley on Sunday, June 14, 2020!

In 2018, over 100 individuals impacted by epilepsy joined us in our fourth year at Highmark. We were especially proud to break our online fundraising goal of $10,000 by reaching $13,800 in donations from teams and individuals! Last year, for the first stand-alone Walk at Upper Saucon Community Park, our team and individuals crushed it by raising over $26,000! Can we set a new record in 2020?

On Sunday, June 14th, become part of our the Lehigh Valley Walk community by forming a team, walking as an individual, sponsoring a walker or becoming a corporate sponsor!

The Walk to END EPILEPSY – Lehigh Valley will take place RAIN or SHINE at Upper Saucon Township Community Park followed by a community picnic in the pavilion. Registration will open at 9 am and the Walk Kick-Off will be at 10 am. Click HERE for a Map. Additional details coming soon.

Because of the amazing support from our epilepsy community, the Philly Walk outgrew the Forbidden Drive location. So, in 2018, we moved it to Citizen’s Bank Park, home of the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Walk to END EPILEPSY – Philadelphia will once again be at Citizen’s Bank Park on June 20, 2020!

The Walk to END EPILEPSY – Philadelphia will take place RAIN or SHINE inside of Citizens Bank Park. We will be walking on the main concourse. Access to the warning track and bases of the field is condition dependent and will be determined on the morning of the walk. Registration will open at 9:30 am and the Walk Kick-Off will be at 10:30 am. Additional details coming soon.
