Come for a Walk

On October 18th, we will be walking in the annual Epilepsy Freedom Walk. Our team is Team Sophalofa, named after the famous Miss Sophie. I would love for you to join us as we walk to raise awareness about this terrible disease, as we walk for freedom from seizures and freedom to succeed. It's a great event and a beautiful day. Our goal is to raise $5,0000.

If you're far away and so inclined, you can sponsor us. Here are the steps:

1. Start at the event's official website, Epilepsy Freedom Walk.
2. Click on "Donate to Support Walker/Team" (this is located on the left-hand column of the home page)
3. Under "Enter Freedom Walker's Name" type all or some of the first and last name of the Walker you would like to sponsor and click on the "Search" button. You can use my name, Elizabeth Aquino.
4. After the search is complete, click on my name. You will be directed to my personal page, but not the team page.
5.Click on "My Freedom Team Page" You will be directed to the team page.

  1. Hi Elizabeth -- I think the Walk's website link has a problem -- when I click on it, it takes me to the wrong page. Thanks -- Beth

  2. My mom was diagnosed with epilepsy many years ago when I was still a child and although she rarely has seizures I saw her one once. I commend you for this walk and for your efforts to raise awareness of this condition. Many thanks.

    Greetings from London.

  3. I hope you have a good time and raise lots of awareness AND money. Those photos are wonderful.

  4. Beth -- Thanks for letting me know! I've fixed it (see what a great fundraiser I am!!!).

    A Cuban in London - I find that remarkable that we have a connection. Thank you for sharing that.

  5. Done, thank you for letting me know.
    Love to all of you.

  6. Thank you for visiting my blog, Elizabeth! I look forward to reading more of yours, too!
