On March 24th, Neil and I will be participating in the Seize the Moment Run to help raise awareness + funds for the Epilepsy Foundation of Northern California.
I was diagnosed with childhood epilepsy in middle school + told I grew out of it in high school. I was seizure free from 1994 to 2002, experiencing my first grande mal at 25. I went seizure free again from 2003 - 2016. 13 yrs! And then it returned. It was heartbreaking + frustrating but also brought me to a new reality + determination. Don't deny it and pretend it's not there. Respect it. Learn from it.
This will be my first time participating in a fundraiser for epilepsy and am looking forward to joining the epilepsy community. My last 2 seizures took place while running, something I used to do on the daily so this event is also symbolic. Just keep running.
Please join me in raising funds for this great cause. Your support will help fund epilepsy research and awareness programs.
Thank you! xoxo Christine
