Our very own sister, Ellen Tan (you can view her testimony here), who has personally dealt with epilepsy for most of her life, will be leading FBC to join the “Into the Light” Walk for Epilepsy Awareness on Saturday, November 9th at Pier 45 (Hudson River Park at West 10th St and Charles St) at 10AM. The walk will be 3 miles long. There will be refreshments provided along the way. Come and join our “TEAM ELLEN” by signing up at the website below. There’s a suggested donation of $40 (tax deductible) to fund research for epilepsy. If you sign up before this Friday, October 25th, you will get a “TEAM ELLEN” T-shirt from the Epilepsy Foundation of Metropolitan New York. Please contact us to let us know that you have registered under Team Ellen so that we can get an accurate head count!
(Click to: ‘Join a Team’ and you’ll find ‘Team Ellen’ listed in the drop down menu of participating teams)
Join our “Team Ellen” to help raise awareness and support the Epilepsy Foundation of Metropolitan New York in the fight to stop seizures, find a cure and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy. We look forward to seeing you there!
*Stay tuned! We will be posting Ellen’s testimony later this week!
