Registration at 9:00 AM | Event begins at 10:00 AM
Stonebridge Trail in Barrhaven
Our daughter Emily is the inspiration for holding this event. She is one of 360,000 Canadians who battle seizures.
In December of 2017, when Emily was just 4 months old she had her first seizure in the middle of the night. She had her second seizure 3 months later, which lasted over 1 hour. Shortly after Emily was diagnosed with epilepsy.
Emily has had 18 seizures now and has only just turned two. We feel completely helpless and at the mercy of the variety of medications our neurologist is prescribing to try to get her seizures under control.
We feel like we can help in some indirect way by organizing this fundraiser run. Maybe one day there will be more options for children like Emily but the only way to get there is through research. Please help us by donating either online or at our event on October 26th!
