Denver Strides for Epilepsy 5K

Strides Denver

In 2015, we were overwhelmed by the support of our community at our Strides for Epilepsy 5K at City Park. We had more than 2,000 people participate in the largest epilepsy awareness event in the Rocky Mountain Region and raised more than $187,000 for people living with epilepsy. With your support we can do more.

This year’s race is on June 12, 2016 at Denver’s City Park.  Join us! Together we can stop epilepsy in its tracks!
