It can be hard to make new friends in the best of times; finding people who understand your individual journey with epilepsy can be especially tough. The Epilepsy Foundation’s social events seek to bring together all types of people affected by epilepsy to connect, share experiences, and (most importantly) have some fun!
Events happen throughout the year and vary by region according to local needs. Our largest social event of the year is the Rise Above Seizures Walk, which happens in multiple locations across our service area in August and September.
