This summer, the Epilepsy Foundation Western/Central Pennsylvania (EFWCP) will be celebrating 28 years of hosting run/walk events! Since its inception, we have grown from hosting a single event in one city to participating in four run/walk fundraising events in Pennsylvania. The money raised from these run/walk events will stay here to benefit our friends and neighbors with epilepsy/seizure disorders in western/central Pennsylvania communities. Proceeds will support our mission to lead the fight to stop seizures, find a cure and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy.

More than 3,000 people are expected to join us in Pittsburgh and Harrisburg for the Family Fun Run/Walks for Epilepsy. Team mascots, and local radio and television personalities are on hand to lead the day's festivities. It all begins with a 5k run/2 mile walk course that winds through the beautiful city. Participants may then move onto a one-of-a-kind tailgate party, where they can enjoy food and beverages from local sponsors. Prizes are awarded to the teams and individuals that raise the most money.
