Team Sophie and the Walk to End Epilepsy!

The sky was a brilliant blue and the Pasadena sun relentless, but TEAM SOPHIE gathered at the BRAIN NOW bus at the Rose Bowl to walk together to help END EPILEPSY.

Here's our STAR: Gretchen  of Second Blooming who RAN a 5K for Team Sophie and raised more than $500! I adore her. Thank you, Gretchen!

Here's our INSPIRATION, Sophie in front of the Brain Bus. Those teams who raised the most money got their names on the bus. Thank you, everyone who donated!

Here's one of my best friends -- Cara -- who with her husband and girls triumphantly completed the 1K Stroll with us!
She has always been Sophie's and my biggest supporter, and I adore her, too.
Thank you, Cara!

Here's the whole TEAM SOPHIE -- friends, relatives and Sophie's caregiver, my friend Carmen with her entire family!Thank you to each of you. 
I'm not sure how much you realize what it meant to us to have you there, walking alongside Henry, Oliver, Michael, Sophie and me.

I just loved these ladies and their hilarious tee-shirts. As you all know, it's incredibly difficult to
keep calm during a seizure, and those of us in the trenches, dealing with it daily just want epilepsy to END.

 See you next year!
