The Magnolia Run is celebrating 35 years this August and our team, Sprinting for Seizures has been a major contributor for six of those 35 years, raising over $20,000 in 2017 alone! All because of YOU!
For those of you who are new to this event, we have two children that we run for every year: Scottie McCray and Ansley Spinks. Both were diagnosed with Epilepsy at a very young age and both continue to battle the many challenges that come with having seizures and the unpredictability it can bring to life. These kids move through life with more courage and strength than anyone you'll ever know. They are truly warriors of the Epilepsy battle and while today there is no one "fix" or cure for epilepsy, we hope and pray that with our efforts, one day there will be.
The Epilepsy Foundation of Georgia seeks to improve the quality of life for people with epilepsy and their families through community education activities for all age levels and comprehensive set of client service programs, which include support groups, summer camps, and medication assistance. The Magnolia Run plays a big part in the funding!You can help us in one of three ways:(1) Sign up for the run and join us on 8/19 for the 5k or 1-mile fun run (we will provide team shirts/tanks)(2) Make a financial contribution via our team page(3)Visiting any of these fine establishments over the summer (more details to come)!
