DIY Fundraisers

One in 10 people will have a seizure in their lifetime, and one in 26 will develop epilepsy. Every day, communities come together to raise funds to support programs for people with seizures.

Team Rise Above Epilepsy

Team Rise Logo_Black.jpgOn September 10, Gab will compete in The “Tor des Géants” - a non-stop endurance feat running along spectacular paths at the foot of the highest peaks in the Alps. He’ll race 700 other competitors on mountain trails with 80,000+ feet of elevation gain (the equivalent of almost three Mt. Everests), aiming to complete the 205 miles in under 150 hours.

Gab will stretch the limits of human endurance – and why? To support his wife, Dr. Julia Valente, and to raise funds and awareness for epilepsy.
