About Walk to END EPILEPSY – Lehigh Valley

Hey Lehigh Valley, the Walk to END EPILEPSY is going virtual!

While we are disappointed we can’t be together in person, we are thrilled to announce that we are COMBINING our efforts with Philadelphia's into a week-long celebration of our Epilepsy Warriors. The bright side? Now you don’t have to be local to the area to join the fun and celebrations!

Here's how it works:

  1. Register TODAY as an Individual or Team, and join a Group. 
  2. Fundraise and recruit loved ones to Walk to END EPILEPSY with you – from a distance. Share your story and why you Walk!
  3. Join us 11AM on Sunday, June 14 for our Virtual ‘Opening Ceremony’ with special programming, competitions and announcements from Team EFEPA.
  4. Walk to END EPILEPSY on your own time! The rest of the week is yours to get decked out in purple, walk your neighborhood or community park, and take plenty of pictures and videos to share on social media. 
  5. Complete a ‘Fun One-Mile’ Walk or challenge yourself to ‘Go the 5K Distance’ (3.1 Miles)! 
  6. Continue to fundraise and participate in various activities and challenges throughout the week for your chance to win prizes. Raise epilepsy awareness by creating yard signs, making chalk art in your driveway and wearing purple! 
  7. Close out the week with us 11AM on Saturday, June 20 for a special Virtual ‘Closing Ceremony’ where we will share community photos and videos from the week, recognize top fundraisers and achievers, thank our generous sponsors and more! 

We know that these are uncertain times, but we are all in this together. We need our community and your support now more than ever - if you are able, please contribute whatever you can and join us as we Walk to END EPILEPSY!

Why Participate?

By participating in the Walk to END EPILEPSY – Pennsylvania Series you are not only uniting with people across the nation, but also igniting a spark right in your own backyard. 

The Walks are non-competitive, family friendly and open to the public. They are designed to be a celebration all while raising critical funds and awareness for the EFEPA and our local epilepsy community. 

The Walk to END EPILEPSY events are free to register with fundraising strongly encouraged. As always, all proceeds will immediately go towards the continuation and expansion of the free programs, resources and support services provided right here in Lehigh Valley. 

We walk to build community so that no one feels alone in their diagnosis. We walk so kids can attend Camp Achieve.  We walk to raise awareness and build supportive, seizure-safe communities. We Walk to END EPILEPSY.

Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by epilepsy. Will you join us?
