Walk to END EPILEPSY

Lehigh Valley | Philadelphia | Lancaster | NEPA

Last year, the Walk series welcomed over 3,000 Epilepsy Champions from across our 18-county service area! This year, the EFEPA is proud to once again be part of the Epilepsy Foundation of America’s nationwide Walk to END EPILEPSY. From the 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.

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. Registion 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…
