Sporting a new hat thanks to @epilepsyfoundationau. Also motivated me to get out and moving today especially when when i saw we had reached $15 556 - woo hoo!!

Saturday's Run

Welcome Tess!

Tess our just turned 11 year old has joined the team. Welcome Tess! She has committed to run 15km in the next 19 days after school. She has a goal of raising $100 and I know she will smash it! Check out her profile on our teams page.

Bart is the man!

Because we couldn't have done this without him! All of it. Not just the fundraising. x

Smashed the $10K!

$10 627 reason to run 8km today. My mind is blown. Thank you!

For those who have asked...

I have temporal lobe epilepsy. Specifically my left lobe. We know this because I lose my ability to speak when I have a seizure. Read a little more about it here: https://www.epilepsy.com/learn/types-epilepsy-syndromes/temporal-lobe-epilepsy-aka-tle

Thank You!

We are going to keep pushing - next stop $10K!

We've created this team because..

We want to raise money and make a difference by taking part in Walk for Epilepsy - but we are running and rowing! 

On 22nd December 2020 as a 38 year old women and mum and step mum of five, Carina was diagnosed with left temporal lobe epilepsy. The diagnosis, the medication, the acceptance, the loss of drivers licence was incredibly challenging for Carina and our family. The impact to her physical and mental health was significant.

Please help by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about the walk, the greater the impact, so please also spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!

Go BART! What an epic challenge for a wonderful cause. My nephew also suffers from epilepsy and recently had a car accident (due to a seizure) which means he will never drive again. It is very difficult for a 21 year old boy to live with. I love your determination and spirit of contribution to do something to help.
