Thank you for helping us Walk for Epilepsy around Australia!
This October we achieved something incredible. With your help, we raised more than $280,000 for people living with epilepsy.
More than 1200 people from across the country (and even overseas) came together to conquer their local streets in Walk for Epilepsy around Australia. Even though we couldn’t physically be together, we’ve never been better connected; we’ve shared more stories, inspired more people, and supported each other better than ever before.
To each and every one of our walkers, thank you. To everyone who donated to improve the lives of loved ones and strangers alike, thank you. Every step walked, every dollar raised, every conversation started has made a profound difference. With your support, we’ll be able to help more families, train more schools, and research with more determination than we’ve ever been able to.
You’ve all worn your stories with pride, and simply taking part is a mammoth achievement.
We’ve still got work to do. Research into epilepsy, and into finding a cure, continues at rapid pace. People living with epilepsy continue to face stigma and uncertainty. We’ll keep working, and we’ll do it in the knowledge that each of you is working too. Together, we can achieve the impossible.
A Virtual Event
Epilepsy’s Walk around Australia is a 25-day virtual event, where the community is encouraged to come together and walk (or run/ride/swim/wheel) the just over 25,000km around Australia to raise awareness and support for the 1 in 25 Australians living with epilepsy.
You decide how many kilometres to contribute to the tally, then choose when, where and how you will complete them, between 1 and 25 October.
Contribute as many kilometres as you can. Every step you take will help make a difference.
