<-----That's her there! She's had seizures since she was 4 years old. When she first started having seizures, we had no idea what to do or where to turn. The AZ Epilepsy Foundation was such a great resource for us. That is why we are asking people to please consider joining the Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona for the 9th Annual Epilepsy Walk in Phoenix on April 10, 2010 at the Phoenix Zoo. The Phoenix Epilepsy Walk is the Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona’s largest fundraiser. The walk is a pledge-driven, non-competitive, event engaging people affected by epilepsy and their friends and families.
This fundraising walk not only raises money to support the programs and services of the Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona, but also serves to increase epilepsy awareness throughout the general population and is a wonderful way to spend the day with your family.
• Walk a one-mile route around the zoo
• Enjoy the fun, festivities and free health information
• Registration is FREE and includes FREE admission to the zoo for the day
. We appreciate everyone that helps us with our efforts to support the Epilepsy Foundation!
This is our 5th walk with the AZ Epilepsy Foundation! Every year the kiddies and I do the walk, and this is the second year it has been located at the Phoenix Zoo.
455 N. Galvin Parkway |Phoenix, AZ
