About the EFEPA 5k

Join the Epilepsy Foundation Eastern Pennsylvania (EFEPA) as we lace up our running shoes to make Strides Against Seizures!
On October 6, 2019 we will run and walk for the 1 in 26 who will be diagnosed with epilepsy in their lifetime. Join fellow Epilepsy Warriors for the EFEPA's Strides Against Seizures 5K circling iconic Fairmount Park to raise awareness and critical funds for our local epilepsy community.
There isn't just one reason to run...there's 110,000! Epilepsy affects over 110,000 families and individuals in eastern Pennsylvania alone. By joining the race you're joining the fight against seizures and helping us take strides to find a cure.

Epilepsy Foundation Eastern PA

Calling all Epilepsy Warriors!

For the last 47 years, the Epilepsy Foundation Eastern PA has lead the fight in our region to end epilepsy and all of the many associated challenges through efforts including education, advocacy and research.

Now, we need YOU to lead the race to raise critical awareness and funds for this vastly misunderstood disorder!

The EFEPA dares to imagine a society free of stigma, fear, isolation, discrimination and seizures; a community that's safe, supportive, understanding and accommodating to those living with epilepsy.

By participating in the EFEPA's Strides Against Seizures 5K you'll be making a difference in the lives of those battling epilepsy. From a child living with epilepsy getting the opportunity to attend summer camp for the very first time, to a student who can learn and thrive in the classroom because their school is seizure safe.

We are here to provide free support services, educational conferences and trainings, resources and referrals to local families in need. Join us today and declare your support for our epilepsy community!
