The 2013 Phoenix Epilepsy Walk theme is Global Epilepsy Awareness, Local Support. 

With 1 in 100 people in the United States living with epilepsy, the Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona would like to draw attention to the millions around the world who are also dealing with the seizure disorder. Epilepsy is more prevalent than cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's combined. The fastest growing populations of people diagnosed with epilepsy are senior citizens and children. The number one known cause of epilepsy is traumatic brain injury; however epilepsy in general does not show any discrimination between gender or ethnicity.

We encourage vendors and teams to celebrate the message of Global Epilepsy Awareness and come in costume as a country or culture of your choice.

FAQs

My whole family will be walking; do I have to register each individual person, even children? Yes. We strongly suggest you register your family as a team, thus enabling each individual the opportunity to fundraise as a member of the team and possibly earn walk prizes. In addition to building your team numbers, registering all attendees allows us to count our total attendance each year. 

How long is the Walk? Is this a race? The Walk is approximately two miles and is non-competitive. 

I checked that I want to decline walk rewards; will I still receive a t-shirt? Yes, each individual who registers will receive a t-shirt.

I am a Team Captain, what is my role? As a Team Captain you will recruit team members and register your team online.  The Team Captain encourages people to sponsor team efforts in the walk. In addition, the Captain will provide their team tips and pointers on how to fundraise for the Walk. 

I am the Team Captain, I raised all the money in my name with the help of my teammates; will they each receive gifts? Each walk participant is encouraged to raise funds individually to support their own efforts. We will provide tote bags for every $100 raised by a team based on their combined fundraising efforts. Any single team member who raises at least $100 will get a walk tote bag. 

I pre-registered online; do I still have to check-in at the walk? Yes, you must check-in on walk day, this also give you an opportunity to submit any donations you may still have and collect your Walk shirt. 

I registered online but donors have supported me via checks and cash, not by donating online? You can mail checks and cash to the EFAZ offices prior to the walk or turn in checks and cash the day of. Proceed to the pre-registration table, check in and turn in additional funds. If you are mailing, our address is:

About the Epilepsy Foundation

Epilepsy is a disorder of the brain marked by sudden disruptions of its electrical system. These events are called seizures, which are typically brief, and overwhelm the usual functions of the brain. Epilepsy has no single cause, but can originate from any number of conditions that injure or affect the function of the brain.

In the United States, one in one-hundred, or one percent of, individuals are diagnosed with epilepsy; approximately 66,500 of those individuals in Arizona. One in ten individuals will have a seizure in his or her lifetime. Epilepsy costs about $15.5 billion in medical expenses and lost or reduced earnings and productivity each year. One-third of all people with epilepsy will continue to have uncontrolled seizures despite treatment.

The mission of The Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona is to “lead the fight to stop seizures, find a cure and overcome challenges created by epilepsy.” There are currently 17 programs offered by the Foundation Our overall objectives focus on the 65,000 people in Arizona who have epilepsy by: 

1. Providing information on how to live successfully with epilepsy

2. Making education and networking opportunities available for those who have epilepsy and their families. 

3. Conducting professional and lay seminars on new advancements in epilepsy treatment. 

4. Providing Camp Candlelight, a one week summer camp experience exclusively designed for children with epilepsy. 

5. Reaching out to African-Americans, Native Americans and Latino communities, to offer specific training for medical interpreters and community health workers. 

6. Offering education and training to school nurses, school personnel and students about epilepsy. Programs include Managing Students with Seizures and the Take Charge of the Facts, an epilepsy curriculum for junior high and high school students, and other age appropriate programs. 

7. Developing and offering an educational module focusing on seniors, their families and caregivers and offered through assisted living facilities, intergenerational facilities and senior centers. 

8. Performing an awareness campaign for veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan who have sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury and are at an increased risk of developing post-traumatic epilepsy. Operation Outreach is our approach to educating, advocating, assisting, and counseling.
