Athletes vs Epilepsy is a nationwide program for athletes, coaches, volunteers, and fans. The program seeks to raise awareness, build participation, and help fund the Foundation’s mission.
The initiative brings epilepsy and seizure awareness to different sports through participation by athletes of all ages and skill levels, as well as their supportive friends, family, and fans.
Athletic events provide a prime opportunity to bring together like-minded individuals who are passionate about a sport or team. Their passion and energy is directed toward a common goal: to overcome a challenge, to surpass an obstacle, and to win.
AthletesVsEpilepsy.com provides information on a variety of opportunities to participate:
- Signature Events: Athletes vs Epilepsy has partnered with events across the nation, including bike races, 3-on-3 basketball tournaments, and endurance races.
- Choose Your Own Events: Athletes can join the program and participate in the event of their choosing while raisi ng funds and awareness.
- Do It Yourself: Supporters can register to create their own events to raise funds and build awareness.
The website features the stories of many of our athletes as they strive to overcome their own challenges with epilepsy or to help raise funds and awareness in honor of a friend or family member living with epilepsy. It also features information about our Athlete Ambassadors, the latest news stories, training and motivational tips, and fundraising tools and opportunities for you to get involved.
