Raise Funds To End Epilepsy Deaths!

Hey everyone, I'm running the Chicago Marathon to raise money for the Danny Did Foundation, www.dannydid.org, whose mission is to prevent deaths caused by epilepsy seizures.  Epilepsy impacts nearly three million people in the United States and 65 million people worldwide. One in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy over their lifetime, so chances are you know someone with epilepsy or who will develop epilepsy.

I'm running the Chicago Marathon on 10/12/2014 and have a goal to raise $2,000 before the race.  Like my running training, I’m a little behind in getting going but I’ll catch up to speed on both quickly. Will you please help me? I would be grateful for any amount you can donate.  (100% of funds raised will go to the Danny Did Foundation.)

The Danny Did Foundation works toward its mission to prevent deaths caused by seizures with these main goals in mind: advancing public awareness of Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP), enhancing the SUDEP communication model between medical professionals and families afflicted by seizures, and the mainstreaming of seizure detection and prediction devices that may assist in preventing seizure-related deaths. We view these devices as complimentary to medicinal, surgical and dietary measures that are used to treat seizures. 


Thank you for your support!
