Event Details

The Epilepsy Foundation of Metropolitan New York (EFMNY) is pleased to announce its Virtual 9th Annual Walk to End Epilepsy in New York City, Monday, August 17 - Sunday, October 18, 2020, with the Celebratory Zoom Call Day on Sunday, October 18, starting at 11 AM.   

Join the Epilepsy Foundation of Metropolitan New York as we celebrate epilepsy awareness and participate in a Virtual Walk to bring epilepsy “Into The Light.” Our goal is to make this the largest and most successful annual epilepsy awareness event yet, and with your generous participation we will do just that!   

The health and well-being of everyone - Teams, Individuals, Sponsors, Medical Centers, Volunteers, Professional Staff, etc.- as well as our NYC community of those with Epilepsy and Seizures and their families, remains our sole priority. For this reason, this year we will all virtually walk together to show our shared commitment to supporting one another and to making a true difference for our common cause! Because we are now walking virtually this year, the Celebratory Zoom Call Day replaces our Live Annual Walk Day, at the Walk Site, as in all past years (see Overview, Celebratory Zoom Call Day for more info). 

For this year’s Virtual Walk, Teams and Individuals will select when and where they would like to do their walk, and we encourage doing so as near as possible to Sunday, October 18. Registrations will be taken up to Sunday, October 18, and Teams should have at least five Individuals, led by the designated Team Captain. Please know that this year, all Team and/or Individual T-Shirts will be mailed out 30 days after October 18, so this allows you added time to walk and raise more for the Epilepsy mission!   

More information will be updated from now until the event. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact Chilton Harper, MPA at or 917-856-5717.
