**The Epilepsy Foundation is closely monitoring the evolving situation surrounding COVID-19 (coronavirus). In light of the updated CDC and World Health Organization guidelines, we understand that events have been canceled worldwide. We hope that you will continue to support the Epilepsy Foundation with your fundraising efforts. If you are unable to continue fundraising for your CYO event, we encourage you to consider participating in one of our many other Signature Event options. We encourage you to continue to practice these social distancing and handwashing guidelines.  We appreciate your continued support during this challenging time.**
