The Iowa Walk for Epilepsy & 5K is being presented by University of Iowa Health Care – Department of Neurology & Neurosurgery and organized by the Epilepsy Foundation of North/Central Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska. Come together and join others to raise money to help support the services to people living with Epilepsy in Iowa! The 5K run will be a chipped timed event again this year! The 5K Run and 1 mile walk will start at 10:30 AM at Shelter #6, Lower City Park, Iowa City. This is your opportunity to impact people’s lives by raising funds as a team in honor of your loved one for people living with epilepsy in Iowa. *Families living with epilepsy who would like to participate in the 1 mile walk, but are unable to pay the registration fee, please call the Epilepsy Foundation’s Iowa office at 515-282-3580 for more information.
