An estimated 16,000 kids, teens, and young adults live with epilepsy in the six counties surrounding Tampa. They need our support, our encouragement, and our understanding.
And that’s where Epilepsy Services Foundation comes in. The charity has worked for 45 years to create a better future for those affected by epilepsy. Epilepsy Services Foundation holds regular events to increase awareness of the chronic illness, offers information and support to those suffering from seizures, and raises funds to provide numerous scholarships to those affected by epilepsy and to those pursuing the field of neurology.
This past Saturday, Dimmitt Automotive participated in the Epilepsy Services Foundation’s 20th Annual Walk for Epilepsy at beautiful Lake Seminole Park.
The foundation could not have chosen a more beautiful day or location for the walk, created to raise awareness for kids, teens, and young adults affected by seizures. Participants were in great spirits as they donned purple and walked 1 or 2 miles (their choice) for a great cause.
Thank you so much to everyone who came out to support those affected by epilepsy. It’s so vital that we remind everyone suffering from a chronic illness that they are not alone or ignored within our community.
We can’t wait for next year’s walk!
