Virtual runner for Epilepsy association

I'm a Virtual Runner

This fall, I’ve decided to dedicate my races to support the Epilepsy Association and the many programs and services the Association provides.

Epilepsy is a highly misunderstood neurological disorder affecting over 3 million Americans including over 326,000 children under the age of 14.

What’s it like to live with a seizure disorder? For many it’s like living with a time bomb in your brain. Uncontrolled, epilepsy can lead to brain damage, developmental delays and pre-mature death. There is also a strong connection between epilepsy and depression. This is why the social services provided by the Epilepsy Association are so important.

I've decided to run in support of the Epilepsy Association, the only community agency in northeast Ohio supporting individuals with epilepsy, their families and caregivers. They have been providing help for over 35 years.

I'm a runner and now I have the opportunity to make my miles count for something more.

Please support my efforts.

With your help, I'll use my miles to raise money and awareness for the Epilepsy Association.

My Mileage Goal is: 50 miles

My Races are:Panerathon 10K, Brookfield 5K, Ice Cream rac 5K,Buhl Day 5K, Peace Race 10K
