Join us for the Walk to END EPILEPSY
We can’t wait to see you in 2024!
The nationwide Walk to END EPILEPSY brings our communities together to make a difference for the people we love who live with epilepsy. In 2023 our walkers, donors and sponsors helped raise nearly $170,000 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.

Be a Team Captain
Team Captains are the heart of Walk to END EPILEPSY! We recommend gathering teams of at least 5, however there is no minimum number of people. Tell your friends, family, and co-workers why you are walking and ask them to join you — you’ll have a team in no time!
Once you register as a Team Captain, you’ll rally your team members to 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 fundraising and recruitment tools to make your team a success.
Join an Existing Team
We are stronger together! Register to join an existing team and work with others to increase awareness about epilepsy and raise funds. If you’ve already registered and want to join a team – no problem! Just contact us and we’ll take care of you.
Once you‘ve joined your team, invite others to register for the Walk to END EPILEPSY or support your efforts making a donation.
Participate as an Individual
You can make an impact by participating on your own at the Walk to END EPILEPSY. Set a fundraising goal and get started!
