Our story…

1 in 10 people will have a seizure in their lifetime. 1 in 26 will be diagnosed with epilepsy.

Help Change the Conversation about epilepsy and seizures by running or walking, volunteering, donating, or fundraising for Empowering Epilepsy’s Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon Team! This is one of Empowering Epilepsy's versions of a run/walk fundraiser for epilepsy in Northeast Ohio!

The Empowering Epilepsy Team in the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon benefits Empowering Epilepsy, our grassroots nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that was founded by people in Northeast Ohio who understand epilepsy and seizures first hand. It allows us to fundraise to support our ongoing programs and services that show people with epilepsy what they can do while living with seizures.

You can participate by running or walking in the Full Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, 5K, and Kids Run, and/or The Challenge Series. Make sure to join Empowering Epilepsy's Team,. Ask your friends and family to support EE!
