Living with seizures is never easy. Little Ben knows. After having two seizures at school, his friends didn't want to have much to do with him. Suddenly, he ate lunch alone, wasn't asked to play road hockey and didn't get invited to sleepovers anymore. He was the exact same kid as before, but others, even his friends, couldn't see past the seizures. Two seizures were all it took to turn his life upside down. And that's why we need your help. The stigma of epilepsy is an added burden to thousands of children just like Ben. By joining the Epilepsy Toronto team and raising pledges for our agency, you will help fund the critical epilepsy support services such as counseling, and support groups that help children, adults and their families cope with this challenging disorder. By walking or running with hundreds of other people who care about epilepsy, you also help us bring this hidden disorder out of the shadows, and help eliminate stigma — improving the lives of thousands impacted by epilepsy in our city.
Epilepsy Toronto will cover the registration fee for the run for each individual who raises $200 or more! It is our way of saying "thank you" for your special contribution to a very important cause.
