On Your Marks…Get Set…Go: 4th Annual Seize the Day Event Takes on Epilepsy!


On Sunday, September 24, 2017, Epilepsy Southwestern Ontario (ESWO) will host its 4th Annual Seize the Day 5k Run / 2.5k Walk at Kiwanis Park North (Hale St. entrance) to raise funds for epilepsy education, support and community engagement programs for local communities in Southwestern Ontario. This fun filled family event will include a run and walk, followed by a community BBQ. Registration starts at 10:30am.


The Seize the Day 2.5k Walk & 5k Run supports individuals, families and members of the community affected by seizure disorders and epilepsy. Whether you are walking to honour someone who passed away from a seizure, supporting those affected by epilepsy and seizure disorders, or want to help raise awareness, we invite you to join us for this special occasion.
