OK, I’m a chump. I’ve been so scatterbrained lately (and thought next week was the last week of March, not this week) that I left my
frequent and obnoxious demands for money fundraising efforts to the last minute. Yes, it’s once again time for the annual National Walk for Epilepsy here in Washington, D.C. Boo, I only have three days now to non-stop harass my friends and family for money! BUT, I plan to make the most of it!
For the third year in a row, I am walking in support of my friend of 25+ years, Sandy, who has struggled with epilepsy for more than 20 years. Sandy is a mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend who still has hope that someday her epilepsy will be brought under control. I am proud to support my friend as a member of TEAM SANDY (see how creative we are with the team name? Clearly we need all the help we can get!!). Please donate to the cause not only for Sandy, but for any and every one who lives each day with a seizure disorder.
The Walk takes place in Washington, D.C. where thousands will gather to support people living with epilepsy, their family, friends and caregivers. If you visit the National Walk for Epilepsy Website you can see how the Walk supports all the things the Epilepsy Foundation does: funding research and ending discrimination against people with epilepsy, bringing awareness to seizure disorders, and educating the public about how to identify seizures and how to respond.
The Walk is a great way to bring awareness about epilepsy. For example, did you know:
- One out of 10 people will have a seizure at some point in their lives?
- Every four minutes someone learns they have epilepsy?
- Seizures can strike anyone at any time?
Please make a donation today to TEAM SANDY and help make a difference to Sandy, and in the lives of people living with epilepsy.
