2017 Springfield Walk for Epilepsy

Saturday, April 29, 2017


Epilepsy Foundation New England provides help for today and hope for tomorrow for tens of thousands of people living with epilepsy.  On April 29, 2017, we invite you to join us for the 5th Walk for Epilepsy in Springfield. It will be a day of inspiration, hope, and fun as we walk to show our support for people affected by epilepsy in our community. 

The Springfield epilepsy walk helps us team up with friends, loved ones, caregivers, and co-workers to make a difference for people affected by epilepsy. Together, we become a powerful force. With every step we take, and every dollar we raise, we are that much closer to finding a cure.

At EFNE’s Springfield epilepsy walk, you will be able to honor loved ones living with epilepsy, remember those we have lost, raise epilepsy awareness, and support epilepsy fundraising. The funds raised by our dedicated walkers, volunteers, and sponsors help us to provide support for education and services, and accelerate new therapies. Come join a community of spirit and strength!
