Join a team. For our Athletes vs. Epilepsy, it’s about more than just the race, game, meet, etc. Each of our athletes also raise money and awareness on behalf of Epilepsy Foundation and our fight to stop seizures and SUDEP (sudden unexplained death in epilepsy), find a cure and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy through efforts including education, advocacy and research to accelerate ideas into therapies.

Athletes vs. Epilepsy has partnered with a variety of sporting organizations nationwide to receive a set number of entries for individuals who would like to participate and raise funds and awareness for the Epilepsy Foundation. If you don’t see the event that you are interested in participating in you can still raise funds and awareness through our Choose Your Own (CYO) event or create your own special event through our DIY (Do It Yourself) options.

Featured Athlete

 

It was a Sunday. Braylon was excited as we were preparing to have some of the team over after practice that evening. He was four at the time and to say that he adored the team is an understatement. The excitement of the day had left him a bit whiny so I insisted that he take a nap so he could play with the “fellas” when they arrived.

Braylon and his younger brother Andrew climbed on my lap and we snuggled on the couch so that they could rest. About thirty minutes later, I thought Braylon was waking up. He was quiet and stayed on my lap. After a few minutes, I realized that although he was awake, something was clearly wrong. He was staring off to the left and could only give one word responses. Our sweet boy was lost inside his body.
