Walk for Epilepsy 2023

I'm fundraising for... Epilepsy ACT for the knowledge and support for the non profit organisation to raise awareness for so many people who don't understand the difference between a seizure and a person overdosing

Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological conditions affecting 50 million people worldwide

Every week in Australia, 280 people are diagnosed with epilepsy and sadly 5 Australians will die from epilepsy each week.

I am raising funds to ensure Canberrans with epilepsy have access to the support, training, and information they need to live well with epilepsy.

With access to the right treatment around 70% of people with epilepsy can gain control over their seizures
