The Epilepsy Foundation's Walk 4/20/2013

Do you want to be a part of something special, and meet family that you never knew you had? I strongly recommend going to the Epilepsy Foundation's walk in D.C. Last year I met lovely folks, and as over two million Americans and sixty five million folks worldwide contend with epilepsy, this is a cause that you do not want to miss out on. I had to chuckle, when I heard the date was being held on 4/20. Puff, Puff, Pass. Yet in all seriousness, this is a fun, family friendly event, where you walk around the sights of Washington. There are teams, and I would like to say a special thanks to Jaime, Sara, John, along with Rob, Lisa, and Evan. You know who you are, and you inspire me by your courage everyday. May this year we walk again, and I have learned so much from you.

The weather was fairly cooperative last year, and I hope it will be the same, because thousands of people show up. You will see more purple here, than anywhere this side of Barney the Dinosaur, and it truly is a sight to behold. Every event held by the Epilepsy Foundation, I have learned something new. For instance, last year it was the effects of sports injuries, along with what's going on with our heroes, who are returning home from battlefields with seizures. It was such a joy, to walk with people who are contending with epilepsy, or love someone with it, and don't believe in giving into "the E," but rather believe in stepping up to it. True champions the walkers are, and people from all across the US show up here.

If you want to attend, let a bald man know. I live just outside of DC, right next to the metro. We'll put you up, and "leave the light on for you," just like those Red Roof commercials. This is a great way of showing your support, along with raising funds for epilepsy awareness and research. Professionals from the field are in attendance, as are representatives from the National Epilepsy Foundation, which is located in nearby Landover, Maryland. If you are interested, here's the link, and by all means come on down to D.C. and rock the purple.
