Community Walks for Epilepsy

DULUTH, Minn.– It may have been gloomy outside, but that didn’t stop those with epilepsy and their supporters from coming out to Park Point to walk for the Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota, Duluth Walk.

Dozens of people dressed in purple lined up in the Park Point Beach House. Getting ready to walk 1.26 miles, in honor of the 1 out of 26 people who will be diagnosed with epilepsy. Organizers say that the walk is all about showing people that live with epilepsy that they are not alone, and always have support.

“Well, the Epilepsy Foundation, we’re mission driven. And our mission is really clear, to focus on people living with epilepsy and seizures, and to put the care and support around them. Educating our community and let people know that they don’t have to journey through epilepsy alone,” Executive Director of The Epilepsy Foundation, Glen Lloid, said.

The Epilepsy Foundation will be at the State Fair this year. Holding a “Be Seizure Smart” exhibit in the Education Building.
