Walk to END EPILEPSY
Lehigh Valley | Philadelphia | Lancaster | NEPA
This year, the EFEPA is proud to once again be part of the Epilepsy Foundation of America’s nationwide Walk to END EPILEPSY. From coast to 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.
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. Registration is FREE with fundraising strongly encouraged. As always, all proceeds will support the free programs and services provided right 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.
Start getting your steps in NOW, and help us collectively walk across the distance of Pennsylvania (310 miles!) while bringing attention and understanding to the one in 26 people who will be diagnosed with epilepsy in their lifetime. Every step you take now until your local Walk kicks off gets us one step close to our goal to END EPILEPSY. Learn why our Teams Walk to END EPILEPSY by checking out our Team Spotlights here!
We hope you’ll join us for one, two or all of these great events! If you have any questions, feel free to contact our Development Team by calling (215)-629-5003 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org!

NEPA: Saturday, October 15, 2022
THE WALK TO END EPILEPSY HAS NEW MEANING, AND IT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER.
This August, the EFEPA family suffered the monumental loss of the incredible, irreplaceable, Mike Loughlin. Mike was one of our nearest and dearest friends and volunteers, and an integral part of our Northeast epilepsy community. He was adored by all who knew him and always gave us his very best self. He never let epilepsy define him or hold him back, and he would never want us to stop fighting for those living with epilepsy.
We invite YOU to join us on Saturday, October 15, at PNC Field as we Walk to END EPILEPSY in loving memory of Mike Loughlin. As always, we will be walking to honor, remember, and celebrate the special Epilepsy Warriors in your life. Together, we will take tragedy and turn it into motivation for change, advocacy and hope for our epilepsy community.
The EFEPA is proud to announce the funds raised through the Walk to END EPILEPSY – NEPA will be put towards opening an epilepsy community center right in Wilkes-Barre, PA! We cannot do it without the full support of our NEPA community members.
What do we need to do? Our past events have raised between $25-30,000 that we rely heavily on to support the continuation and expansion of our locally provided programs and services. In order to make our dream of a community center a reality, we need to raise an additional $30,000 on top of our traditional fundraising.
The loss of Mike is a reminder of why a space where we can gather, meet, connect and volunteer is more needed than ever. We envision a central location for our staff offices, a hosting ground for conferences, support groups, workshops, consultations, therapeutic sessions, and more.
How can YOU help? Grab the baton. Form a team, recruit your loved ones, ask for donations, reach out to local businesses for sponsorships, post on social media to share your story and raise critical funds and awareness. Pick out your best purple shirt and get ready to Walk to END EPILEPSY at PNC Field in Moosic, PA!
We walk to END seizures, END silence, END stigma, END fear, and END isolation. Now is the time to walk for powerful change for those living with epilepsy by opening a brand new epilepsy community center right in Northeast PA.
