A Teen Advocate in Action

IA - Kendall M.jpg

Kendall, 15, participated in the 2016 Teens Speak Up! Conference in Washington, D.C. After returning home to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, she raised funds and worked with the Epilepsy Foundation of North/Central Illinois, Iowa, and Nebraska to organize "Bounce Out the Stigma," a one-day basketball camp at the University of North Iowa. This event raised awareness about epilepsy and empowered young people living with the disease. Camp participants learned to perfect their free shots from Mike Simmel, a former entertainment basketball player with the Harlem Wizards.
