BENEFITING: Epilepsy Foundation of Metropolitan New York
ORGANIZER: Epilepsy Foundation of Metropolitan New York
I first joined New York’s epilepsy community as a professional in 2004. In that capacity, I had the opportunity to work with hundreds of individuals and families affected by seizure disorder. I also became close friends with a co-worker whose father was diagnosed with epilepsy when she was six-years-old. Together, we share a commitment to raise epilepsy awareness, so that people affected by seizures have access to the best treatments, services and quality of life possible. As a social worker, I’ve seen how increased education and awareness can be extraordinarily powerful. So, this year I’m running for the Epilepsy Foundation of Metropolitan New York. As many of you visiting my page will know, I love to run. The way it makes me feel, helps me to relieve stress and gives me opportunities to explore the world around me. When I tie up my sneakers and head out for a run, I try never to take my own health for granted. I hope you’ll do the same. Please support me and my fellow Epilepsy Road Warriors by making a donation today!
