My target 300 kms
We’re taking part in Walk for Epilepsy around Australia because...
Shortly after Charlie’s first birthday, our lives changed forever. We experienced what no parent ever wants to see - their baby losing consciousness, over and over again, multiple times a day. And yet we still feel ‘lucky,’ because Charlie’s epilepsy is currently managed with medication.
While we don’t yet know what Charlie’s future will look like, we do know we want to make a difference for all people living with epilepsy and help to increase everyone’s understanding of epilepsy.
We’re aiming for 300km between us during the 30 days of September, with a minimum fundraising goal of $1 per km (we are getting our walking in early due to lockdown but also to hopefully inspire others to take part in October).
Please help us by giving whatever you can using the 'Donate' button. The more people that know about the walk for epilepsy, 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!

Day 28 and we are upping our goal!!!Tuesday 28th Sep With only two days and 18km to go of our early 30 Day Walk for Epilepsy, we have more than doubled our initial fundraising goal of $300. We are so grateful to everyone who has supported Epilepsy ACT and raising awareness of epilepsy. Sooooo we have decided to up our fundraising goal to $1000 !!! We will keep walking and talking throughout the month of October 😊 Share
Day 19Sunday 19th Sep We have walked almost every day so far, but have been experiencing some of that lockdown low energy. Today was good though - all five of us went walking on a new trail and even saw a few kangaroos :) Share
Day 11Saturday 11th Sep Another beautiful day to walk. Sore muscles from doing a bunch of house and garden work, but still making it out each day. Share
Day 10Friday 10th Sep
Day 8 & 9Thursday 9th Sep Started trying to keep to a walking pace of less than 10 mins per km. More of a struggle for the one pushing Charlie in his pram 😂 But we found a new walking trail in our local area, so looking forward to changing up the view every few walks! Share
Day 7Tuesday 7th Sep It was close to sunset, but we got our walk in! Still need to catch up on some k’s though (and maybe some z’s, considering Charlie’s sleeping lately 😝) Share
Day 5 & 6Monday 6th Sep Beautiful evening walks yesterday and today. Tired but glad we did it for the beautiful pink skies and rushing streaks of water from the rain all weekend. Share
Day 4Saturday 4th Sep It poured rain alll day! And while we still got some km’s up by chasing Charlie around the house, we will have to make up the distance once the sun comes out again! Share
Day 2 & 3Friday 3rd Sep We have managed to get out three mornings in a row for a walk! Charlie keeps telling us, "outshide" (outside), and we can’t say no to him in this beautiful weather. Share
