About the Tasmania Walk for Epilepsy

Join us as we hit the pavements of Tasmania this October!

Whether you’re touring your local neighbourhood, heading out for a hike at Cradle Mountain, or gearing up for a cycle, every kilometre counts.

How to register

To join the fun, simply hit the ‘register’ button above. You’ll gain access to our Walkers Facebook group to share encouragement and progress, and can buy your very own Walk for Epilepsy T-shirt to show your support.

Why you should fundraise

1 in 25 Australians will develop epilepsy in their lifetime. For many people, epilepsy can bring with it unique challenges, from frequent doctor’s visits, scans and tests to stigmatisation and isolation. We’re seeking to show our support for people living with epilepsy everywhere, and to raise vital funds to support those people through every stage of their journey.

Your support can make a real difference. Thank you for all that you do!

Now -- let’s get walking!

About Epilepsy Tasmania

Epilepsy Tasmania is a not-for-profit community organisation that has been improving the quality of life of Tasmanians with epilepsy, and those around them, through education, coordination and support for over 40 years.

CEO, Wendy Groot, is Chair of the national Epilepsy Australia coalition.

Epilepsy Tasmania is committed to bringing epilepsy out of the shadows and breaking down the stigma and discrimination associated with epilepsy in Tasmania.

Its vision is to ensure all Tasmanians who have epilepsy have the same opportunities as the broader community.

Its statewide services and support include: Epilepsy Friendly Workplace training,  Epilepsy Smart School training, Epilepsy Connect peer support, Open Gardens for Epilepsy fundraising and awareness.

COVID-19 Statement

The past 18 months have been incredibly difficult for all of us, and this is especially true for people living with epilepsy.
