Funds raised from Sharon’s Ride.Run.Walk. provide education and awareness, training programs on seizure recognition and first aid, as well as access to specialty and supportive care for the nearly 17,000 people affected by epilepsy here in Idaho. Register as an individual, join a team or create your own team! After registration, you’ll be able to create your own personal fundraising page and/or team page. Get your friends, family members and co-workers to support your individual or team fundraising – share your personal story.
Why your participation matters:
- 1 in 10 people will experience a seizure in their lifetime
- 1 in 26 people will be diagnosed with epilepsy
- 17,000 Idahoans are living with epilepsy
- 3.4 MILLION individuals nationwide are affected by epilepsy
More people live with epilepsy than with autism spectrum disorders, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy combined. Epilepsy is one of the world’s oldest known medical conditions, yet people with epilepsy still face stigma and misunderstanding. 1/3 of individuals are able to control their seizures with diet, medications and other therapies; others continue to struggle with an unexplained diagnosis. Much more research is needed to understand the cause of epilepsy and eventually find a cure.
