Riding 40 miles for Seizures #2

$1,635 of $2,000 goal

 NEW YORK, NY
Why am I riding a 40 mile bike-a-thon through all of NYC AGAIN this year?  To raise desperately needed funds for Epilepsy Free, a small and wonderful not-for-profit organization.  Let me explain why Epilepsy Free is fantastic and needs to stick around. 
It is one of the few not-for-profits that provides scholarships for children and adults who suffer from seizures with no "state of residence restriction" and as a result, applications come from all over the US!  Over the last few years, Epilepsy Free has been able to grant scholarships to many, many children who suffer from seizures and needed help to pay for the pricy specialized camps they needed to attend. 
The other thing that makes Epilepsy Free unique is that it grants continuing education scholarships (college, trade) to adults with ALL TYPES of seizures.  This includes persons with Epilepsy AND those with Psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES). 
Epilepsy Free supports ALL seizure disorders under its umbrella. 
When do I need your contributions by?  I ride in May 2017 so please try to help out before this date.
Why am I doing this? Because I have worked with people with seizure disorders for over 15 years as a psychologist and neuropsychologist.  I work at the Northeast Regional Epilepsy Group and am the Executive Director of Epilepsy Free.
Thank you in advance for any size donation you can give!  Lorna
