The Epilepsy Walk 2019 will begin at 3:30 P.M. The Walk will end at home plate of the Southern Illinois Miners Baseball Field and all walk participants will be provided with a ticket to stay and watch the Miners ballgame following the Walk along with a Perfect Game Voucher and a walk T-shirt. We are expecting approximately 200 guest and we hope that you will be one. Our goal is to raise $5,000 with our fundraising efforts.
Despite the Illinois budget impasse and with strategic epilepsy program reorganization, we have been able to continue to provide essential epilepsy services. Like all Illinois social service agencies the Epilepsy Foundation of Southern Illinois has received significant cuts to our funding and yet we have remained steadfast in our efforts to support the epilepsy community. Our programs continue to foster the wellbeing of children, adults and their families affected by seizures through research programs, educational activities, advocacy, and direct services.
The Epilepsy Foundation of Southern Illinois is very active in the communities in which we serve and we plan to continue to reach more residents in our communities. We have been providing epilepsy programs and services for over 40 years to the following counties in Southern Illinois: Jefferson, Alexander, Clay, Crawford, Edwards, Effingham, Fayette, Franklin, Gallatin, Hamilton, Hardin, Jackson, Johnson, Jasper, Lawrence, Marion, Massac, Perry, Pope, Pulaski, Randolph, Richland, Saline, Union, Wabash, , Wayne, and Williamson County. We provide a quarterly pediatric seizure clinic FREE to our clients at our Mount Vernon office, Epilepsy Support Services to individuals and families of those diagnosed with epilepsy, provide transportation to appointments, provide education to communities about Epilepsy and Seizure First Aid and update information about epilepsy to anyone who reaches out to us. Last year alone over 39,000 individuals received some form of epilepsy education and coordination service through our many forms of outreach.
Please continue your much appreciated support by registering for Epilepsy Walk 2019 and/or donating to the Epilepsy Foundation of Southern Illinois, so we can continue to support and provide program services to the 1 in 26 people who have epilepsy, their families and friends. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact Whitney at email@example.com or 618-244-6680.
