Summer Stroll for Epilepsy


The Summer Stroll for Epilepsy™ is an inspiring morning walk that raises vital funds for the Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan, while also increasing community awareness. If you can't make it in person, participate in our Virtual Stroll and walk anywhere, anytime!  We ask that all strollers and volunteers register through the appropriate Summer Stroll site, and you can even make a donation online to a participant or team!
