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.
Joshua Rahman is just "a normal high-school football player - who happens to have epilepsy." Last year, Joshua's little brother led a fundraiser to support EFMN that raised almost $1,000. This inspired Joshua to use his last few games playing for the Eden Prairie Eagles to raise awareness and funds for other affected by epilepsy.
Says Joshua, "I hope that you'll consider supporting the cause and that you share this campaign with anyone you think can or will help us out. And don't forget to cheer for me and the rest of the EP football program in our playoff run!"

Everybody love popcorn! Amy Purrington of team EEPs PEEPs recommends this easy and tasty fundraiser for walk teams:
"Colorado Jack's popcorn has a wonderful program where they will sell me each bag for $3 and then I can turn around and sell it for whatever price - $6 each, 2 for $10, 3 for $15, etc. (Or gather popcorn orders in advance and place a specific order). There are 5 flavors to choose from; I know that I like the Colorado mix and the Caramel the best. I have been contacting neighbors and co-workers. This is REALLY GOOD popcorn; Most people buy 2 bags!"
