Epilepsy Foundation's Walk to END EPILEPSY®

Join the Walk to END EPILEPSY on Saturday, November 2 at Railroad Park in Birmingham and walk for the more than 54,000 families affected by epilepsy in Alabama. Funds raised from the Walk support our mission in Alabama. Participating in the Walk is a powerful way to be part of the fight to End Epilepsy, support programs and inspire others to join you.
