The Epilepsy Foundation’s fundraising events are a great way to support people with epilepsy, build community, and have fun! Our annual events include a gala in the spring and five fundraising walks throughout our service region in the fall.
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.
On Saturday, June 5th, 2021, our most philanthropic, engaged, and committed community members helped raise more than $227,216 to support programs and services our community relies on. Thank you to everyone who made it a night to remember.
The United in Epilepsy Regional Walks brings thousands of people throughout Minnesota together to walk in support of one another and raise epilepsy awareness. This year the Walk returns in-person and expands to nine total locations, including: Bemidji, Duluth, Fargo/Moorhead, Mankato, Marshall, Rochester, St. Cloud, and the Twin Cities.
We are grateful for the support of our wonderful and engaged community, many of whom plan and host creative fundraising events throughout the year. We are pleased to offer our support of these events by providing materials and promoting them on our web calendar and social media whenever we can.
