2015 Annual Report Page Header

Every year, the Epilepsy Foundation's National Walk for Epilepsy grows in size, scope and significance - thanks to dedicated people like you. The Walk is the preeminent event where the epilepsy community comes together to show the world the importance of raising much needed funds and awareness about epilepsy. In 2015, over 5,000 came to the National Mall in Washington, DC to stand together as one community representing millions of people who live with epilepsy in the United States. 

National Walk for Epilepsy

The money raised from the National Walk for Epilepsy helps the Foundation provide services for people living with epilepsy, provide awareness programs for proper seizure recognition and first aid, provide a voice to make sure health care options for people living with seizures remain strong, and provide much needed research funding toward better treatment options and ultimately cures.

  • Dare to support the 3 million Americans who live with seizures every day as well as their friends and loved ones.
  • Dare to support new and innovative research that leads to exciting treatment options like a new form of intravenous anti-epilepsy medication that shows great promise in helping infants born with seizures.
  • Dare to support advocacy efforts that are making sure people with epilepsy are not discriminated against and that national health care reform properly covers people with seizures.
  • Dare to provide programs to educate first responders around the country about how to identify seizures from behaviors that could be a result of drugs or alcohol
  • Dare to unite with thousands of caring and compassionate people like yourself.
