United in Epilepsy Regional Walks

Epilepsy is what unites us, and together we walk in solidarity to build communities where no one journeys alone.


Our Guiding Philosophy:


Seizure trainings for your school, workplace, and community at no cost.


No one should face epilepsy alone; meet people who understand what you’re going through.


Take back control with access to the information and advice you need.
