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 development@efepa.org!


Lehigh Valley: Sunday, June 13, 2021

The countdown to summer is on and that means we’re ready to rock, roll and Walk to END EPILEPSY! 

After a long year of quarantining, Zoom meetings and social distancing, we are excited to roll out plans for a new, hybrid Walk that includes virtual programming as well as in-person elements. We are closely monitoring guidelines and working within current restrictions to create safe, inclusive celebrations for our community.

We invite you to tune in virtually for a welcome program on the morning of Sunday, June 13! Then, reach your step goals with your nearest and dearest at Upper Saucon Township Community Park, or, complete your mileage in your own neighborhood or community. See some familiar faces while staying safe and socially distant, and celebrate the Epilepsy Warrior in your life. Sign up today by visiting www.EpilepsyWalkLV.org!
