Epilepsy Walk Los Angeles  
March 6, 2022
Rose Bowl, Pasadena

Our Walk event committee is busy making plans for the next event on March 6, 2022. Stay tuned for exciting details! 

About

The Walk is a fun-filled community event – with a serious cause – that gives everyone an opportunity to share their story of epilepsy, learn more about epilepsy, and connect with others affected by epilepsy — all while raising funds. 

Who?

Everyone is needed in this fight. By walking and sharing, you inspire others to do the same. As our numbers grow, even more people will take notice so we can raise even more funding for epilepsy care and research.

When?

March 6, 2022. Stay tuned for more details about the event!

Care+Cure Initiatives for Children

The ultimate goal of the Care+Cure Institute is no child diagnosed with epilepsy. Until we achieve that dream we strive to ensure that all children with epilepsy can get timely access to specialty care and their families can have greater hopes for cures. Our successes thus far that we will expand upon:

  • Reduced wait times to see an epilepsy specialist by funding the training of more pediatric epilepsy specialists.
  • Funded 30 pediatric epilepsy fellowships at major level 4 epilepsy centers lie UCLA, LAC+USC, CHLA, UCSF, UCI and CHOC.
  • Continue to sponsor epilepsy research directed to finding cures.
  • Assist the over 22,000 Children in our region and the 470,000 children nationally with epilepsy through timely access to specialty care.
