Dear Depelteau,

The season of hope is almost upon us—no, not the winter holidays, but the National Walk for Epilepsy! On April 20, 2013, the Walk will take place in Washington, DC.

The Walk has become the centerpiece for raising awareness in our fight against a condition that will affect one in 26 people within their lifetime. We know you share our commitment to bring about new therapies and fight for cures, and that is why we need your enthusiasm and participation in the 2013 Walk.

Registration is now open for 2013! Your support is essential to our success. Since 2007, more than 30,000 participants have taken part in raising over $5 million to fund:

Sending thousands of kids with epilepsy to summer camp
Providing seizure training to school nurses in hundreds of school districts
Educating school students across the country on the facts about epilepsy
Providing seizure first aid training to first responders and law enforcement personnel
Educating more than 6,000 veterans about post traumatic brain injury and epilepsy
With your help, we plan to bring together 5,000 participants from across the country to raise $1 million in the fight against epilepsy.

Join the Fight Today. Your participation makes hope possible.


Phil Gattone
