4th Annual Strides for Epilepsy

It is that time of year again! The morning walk in Washington Park is just around the corner, April 19th at 9:30 am to be exact. I know Super Seizure Boy will be there again, cape and all so there's no excuse for you to miss!

Once again this year we are joining team Sammer Hammer to 'pound out a cure for epilepsy'. Sam is Ava's fantastic friend from Loveland. Her mom's blog is linked below if you would like to get to know Samantha better.

Anyone who can join us, we'd love to see your smiling faces! Can't walk or run but still want to help?? Use the event link below to donate as little as $1 and support much needed research for epilepsy.

Following is the letter I received from the team captain. It also contains the link to register. We hope to see you there!

Hi Friends and Family:

It is that time of year! The Sammer Hammer has formed a team to 'pound out a cure for epilepsy' and you are cordially invited to join us!

Our home page is:
http://events.epilepsycolorado.org/index.php?s=44&group_id=84

Date is April 19th. 9:30 at Washington Park. Fee is $25.00, kids and hairy four legged children are free. We hope you can join us!

For those of you who walked/ran last year on our 'maiden voyage', here are some promises from your Team Captain.

1. The Team Captain promises to be on time

2. The Team Captain promises to have a BIG sign so that people can find the Sammer Hammer

3. The Team Captain promises not to be stressed out because (1) she will not be late and (2) she will have a big sign so that people can find her

4. And Finally....the Team Captain promises not make you wear Sammer Hammer swag that can get caught around your neck and strangle you during a wind storm.

I think with those issues taken care of, we will have a successful stroll, sprint, jog, around the park!

Thanks for all of your support.

Love, The Sammer Hammer and her staff.

Taz, can I share your site with a family that we are friends with here? They have 5 girls and the youngest has here struggles with epilepsy - I think their mom could find a community of support here.
