Walk for Epilepsy This Saturday!

11.02.13 into the light walk for epilepsy

The “Into the Light” Walk for Epilepsy Awareness is this Saturday, November 9th!

Our team leader, Ellen Tan, will be leading us in this 3 mile walk 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 will begin the walk at Pier 45 (Hudson River park at West 10th St and Charles St) at 10 a.m. Refreshments will be provided along the way.

It’s not too late to register! You can still sign up either via the website or the day of at Hudson River Park. The walk-in registration price will be $10. You will be allowed to jog through it but you’ll miss all the fun so please try to register online via the website and notify us so that we can all congregate together the day of for the walk!

On Friday after cell group meetings at 9:30 p.m., we will be signing a poster board for TEAM ELLEN. Come sign your name and support our team!
