About the Walks

Walk to End Epilepsy is a nationwide event held locally throughout the country at different times throughout the year. The Walks are non-competitive, family-friendly, fun days of celebration that raise critical funds and awareness for EFCT and the local epilepsy community. We encourage every walker to make a personal donation and commit to raising funds to help us support the epilepsy community. After completing their registration, walkers will receive an email with a fundraising link to share with their family, friends, and co-workers. This link can be shared via text, email, or social media. Donations can be made up to and on Walk Day. At the walks, participants will hear personal stories from people affected by epilepsy, connect with others who share similar experiences, and enjoy a post-walk celebration with music and food.
