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…
