Help Start The SETS Foundation!

Please consider showing your support by donating any amount towards our goal of forming and establishing the SETS Foundation!
Your generous donation will go towards offsetting the costs and fees associated with starting a Non-Profit Organization in California, as well as the initial start-up costs and administrative demands like CPA's and attorney fees.

We are in the process of completing the steps required to be fully recognized as a non-profit, charitable organization.

Oftentimes, kids who suffer from seizures become embarassed by their condition or begin to feel like they are unable to do all of the things that the other kids can do. They stop participating in sports and avoid social settings due to percieved stigmas that surround Epilepsy.

SETS Foundation will be an advocate for these kids and young athletes
!

The primary mission of Seize Epilepsy Through Sports Foundation (SETS) will be to enrich the lives of youth athletes who suffer from the effects of Epilepsy and Generalized Seizure Disorders, as well as promote awareness, education, outreach, advocacy and support within the community.

SETS Foundation will be committed to the idea that no young athlete should ever be held back from reaching their full potential, in whatever sport or activity they seek to pursue because of a lack of resources, or because of a misconception, or stigma associated with seizures and epilepsy that prevents them from being able to participate in the activity or sport they love. We will also seek to provide athletes with the tools needed to overcome whatever obstacles come their way as a result of Epilepsy and keep them in the game for life!

We will manage, operate and support an amateur competitive BMX racing team (SETS BMX) that will be open to anyone, whether they have epilepsy, know someone who does, or just wishes to support our cause. The success of SETS BMX will serve as a boost that will soon allow SETS Foundation to grow into other youth sports activities and help kids with Epilepsy everywhere.

Whether they compete in baseball, basketball, hockey, cycling, running or any other sport, competitors that have seizures sometimes have tremendous obstacles to overcome. They deserve the same respect, development, resources and support that other athletes enjoy and expect.

Help us realize our dream of someday doing away with the stigmas and misconceptions that surround Epilepsy!

Help us spread the word!
