June 5, 2021: Walk to End Epilepsy 

Location: All over the USA!

Although this last year has been one for the books, one thing that is going to happen regardless (even if a bit different than before) is the Walk to END EPILEPSY.

It won't be held in Washington, DC as it has in the past. Instead, it is being reimagined because this year, it will be held across the nation.  Teams of family and friends will hit the streets, trails, and treadmills everywhere they live.  This year everyone who joins will be participating in the 2.6 Million Mile Challenge.

November is Epilepsy Awareness Month in the USA.

In November, we have 30 days to raise awareness and celebrate those living with epilepsy! There are many ways to do this including attending a webinar or lecture on epilepsy that month, choosing to drop in on an epilepsy support group, spreading information on epilepsy by distributing fliers, dressing up in purple and wearing an "Ask me about epilepsy" T-shirt, and much more.  Your imagination is limitless, use it.
