Join us for the Walk to END EPILEPSY
Denver & Wyoming | Sunday, June 12
Northern Colorado & Western Slope | Saturday, September 10
Colorado Springs | Sunday, September 18
The nationwide Walk to END EPILEPSY brings our communities together to make a difference for the people we love who live with epilepsy. In 2021 our participants, donors and sponsors helped raise over $200,000 to support critical programs and services in our community!
Funds raised from the Walk provide education and awareness, training programs on seizure recognition and first aid, as well as improved access to specialty and supportive care for the nearly 65,000 people affected by epilepsy in Colorado and Wyoming.

In order to gather safely to walk together, our commitment to the health and safety of our participants is our utmost priority. We will follow current local and state public health orders and request that all unvaccinated participants wear a mask and practice social distancing.
Please register ahead of time so we have a sense of how many people to expect! We will also have day-of registration available at each walk site.
It is FREE to participate in the Walk to END EPILEPSY. However, we have so many great fundraising tools – including email templates, with Facebook capability, and more – that make it easy for you to help us raise awareness and funds to support people living with epilepsy in our region.
If you need additional registration support or fundraising ideas, please email email@example.com.
The in-person routes are 5K around some of Colorado and Wyoming’s prettiest urban parks. If you’re planning a neighborhood walk, you can make it as long or as short as you want it to be!
Yes, well-behaved, leashed dogs are always welcome!
Yes! For those diagnosed with epilepsy, the Walk to END EPILEPSY is an opportunity to learn about the Epilepsy Foundation’s services and to connect with others living with epilepsy. During registration, indicate that you live with epilepsy and you’ll receive a FREE T-shirt, either at the event if you attend in person or mailed to you before the event date.
During registration, you will have the option of registering as an individual or you can join a team or form a new one. To join an existing team, either go to the team page link sent to you by your team captain or search for your team name during registration.
Team Captains are the heart of Walk! As a Team Captain, you’ll recruit a team of family, friends, and co-workers, help them fundraise, keep them motivated, and have fun fighting for a great cause in the process. You will also have access to a Team Fundraising Page and numerous tools to make your team a success.
As many or as few as you like.
Returning Team Captains should register first, starting a team with the team name from last year. Then use our email templates or share our Facebook events to encourage team members to register for your team.
If you attend our in-person events, you can pick up your fundraising or Living with Epilepsy T-shirt at the registration tent. If you register as a virtual participant, your shirt(s) will be mailed to you before the event.
There are so many easy ways to start fundraising for the Walk to END EPILEPSY! During registration, you will set up a personal fundraising page. You can forward that link to family and friends via email or social media to encourage them to donate.
You will also be given the opportunity to set up a Facebook Fundraiser, which is quick and painless – and you just might be surprised how many people will support you! We also have plenty of other fundraising ideas and tips and tools in our Resources section.
You can share a link to your participant page with friends and family via email or social media. Your Facebook Fundraiser will also display how close you are to reaching your fundraising goal, and you can share the fundraiser repeatedly to encourage additional donations.
Many employers offer programs to match charitable contributions made by their employees. These “matching gifts” are an opportunity to double or possibly triple your donation to Walk to END EPILEPSY.
Contact your HR department or leadership team for more information.
Participants who use a Facebook Fundraiser raise, on average, $150 more than other fundraisers.
If you didn’t set up your fundraiser during registration, it’s easy to go back and set it up!
First, sign in to your OneCause profile. Find the “Set Up a Facebook Fundraiser” on the left menu and follow the directions to link to your Facebook account.
