This fun filled family event will include a run and walk, followed by a community BBQ. Start time: 10:30am

 

The Seize the Day 2.5k Walk & 5k Run supports individuals, families and members of the community affected by seizures and epilepsy. Whether you are walking to honour someone who passed away from a seizure, supporting those affected by epilepsy and seizures, or want to help raise awareness, we invite you to join us for this special occasion. Whether you run marathons, or just enjoy the casual walk, everyone is welcome to participate! We hope you can join us and help make this annual event even bigger this year.
