WHY WE WALK
Over 500,000 individuals in Florida struggle with epilepsy, making it the state with the most instances in our country. Epilepsy, a common neurological condition that one in 26 people will be diagnosed with at some point in their lives, is a diagnosis when a person experiences two or more seizures that cannot be attributed to another cause. It is a disorder more people live with than autism, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and cerebral palsy – combined. Epilepsy impacts every aspect of one’s life and every person in it, and the number rises when you include the families and caregivers.
