Growing a little bit every year in number of participants and dollars raised, our epilepsy walk is made up of events around the state.
The walk started in Indianapolis in 2008, eventually expanding to Anderson and the South Bend/Mishawaka area. For 2014, a timed run was also part of these events, along with refreshments, face painting and other family-friendly activities.
Future plans are to expand our walks to include more parts of the state.
Since 2007, this golf tournament has been a major annual fundraiser for the foundation. Our title sponsor, Liberty Mutual, has been part of this event since 2010.
In addition to 18 holes of golf, the tournament also features contests, prizes, raffles and auctions. The winning foursome earns the right to compete against other tournament winners around the country for the Liberty Mutual Invitational Finals at Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina.

An Evening for Epilepsy
February 28, 2015
Ritz Charles, Carmel
Our annual benefit gala provides the opportunity to celebrate our past successes while raising money for future programs.
In 2014, we focused on giving "pawsitive empowerment" to those with epilepsy by raising money for canine assistance scholarships. Canine assistants, or "seizure dogs," are specially trained to alert others when a seizure is detected, sometimes before it is even visually noticeable. Because this type of service dog costs thousands of dollars, we hope to help sponsor deserving individuals by raising money for scholarships.
Along with dinner, dancing and a silent auction, the Gala also features awards for Medical Excellence, Distinguished Service, Community Outreach and Inspirational Youth.
