Hundreds Participate in ‘Walk to End Epilepsy’
450 people were out walking the morning of September 11 to fight against epilepsy. They wore purple at Saratoga Spa State Park in light of the event.
“We hope that we can help people when they begin their journey…” Executive Director Jeannine Garab said. “… if you kind of find us early on, we feel like we can be the most effective.”
Garab told us all proceeds from the event go to the Epilepsy Foundation of Northeastern NY, which serves 22 counties across northeast New York.
Garab also told us an estimated 45,000 people are affected by epilepsy in the area. For more information, you can visit their website at https://www.epilepsy.com/local/northeastern-new-york
