GOLD MEDAL ATHLETE SUPPORTS EPILEPSY AWARENESS
RUN FOR EPILEPSY is thrilled to announce that Canadian Paralympic athlete Robbi Weldon will be helping increase epilepsy awareness in Northwestern Ontario by attending and participating in the 2nd Annual Run for Epilepsy on Sunday August 11, 2013! Weldon, who is visually impaired, has competed at both the national and international levels in various summer and winter games.
In the winter of 2010 Weldon competed for Canada in 6 Nordic Skiing events at the Vancouver Paralympic games, and in 2012 she pedaled her way to a Gold Medal at the London Paralympic Summer Games.
Weldon continues her international competition this summer and will be heading to World Cup Finals and World Championships in late August. Run for Epilepsy wishes Robbi the best of luck this summer and extends our thanks for taking time out of her busy training schedule to join us at the 2nd Annual Run for Epilepsy on Sunday August 11, 2013.
Don’t miss your opportunity to come out and meet one of Canada’s premier athletes this summer while doing your part to raise epilepsy awareness. To register for Run for Epilepsy and meet Robbi, simply CLICK HERE.
Inaugural Run for Epilepsy an overwhelming success!
Just some of the participants of the 1st annual Run for Epilepsy
waiting at the start line on August 19, 2012.
After many months of waiting, the first Run for Epilepsy in Thunder Bay, Ontario took place on August 19, 2012. We set our sights high and prepared for 200 registrants, and when all was said and done 304 people were out to run/walk/roll with us! Our participants came from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario and Manitoba and helped us raise over $17,000! A huge thanks to all our volunteers from the Northern Credit Union - without you folks Run for Epilepsy never would have happened!
