Epilepsy Walk Notice

I just got this email about the walk tomorrow that I thought would be good to pass along to all of you who may be participating...

This Saturday is going to be a real scorcher, and the Epilepsy Foundation of Kentuckiana wants to make sure we do everything we can to keep everyone attending Walk Around Kentucky for Epilepsy at the Louisville Zoo as comfortable as possible. So, yesterday, Connie and I met with our friends at the Zoo and they made arrangements for us to use the Gheen’s Center, which is air conditioned and has tables and chairs, to hold the door prize drawing and awards ceremony! And, this building is close to the Meta Zoo Stage where the walk will begin and end.

Also, the Zoo has ample air conditioned exhibits for Zoo goers to go in and out of to take shelter from the heat. Best yet, is the Calistoga Spray Park for those wishing to cool down in the spraying water. Kids can bring their bathing suits to change in and out of…..which is just another perk to having our Walk at the Louisville Zoo!!

The Epilepsy Foundation will have plenty of water on hand, along with fruit, breakfast bars and yummy donuts. So, if you haven’t already made plans to join us…..its not too late! Go to to download a walk brochure or register online. Or, just come to the Zoo between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m., tomorrow to register to participate. The cost is only $25. You can make a donation in this amount or ask family and friends to support your efforts in the Walk. Our goal is to raise $1 for every child and adult impacted by seizures in Kentucky and southern Indiana, and with your help we can reach this goal of raising $90,000!!

On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff of the Epilepsy Foundation of Kentuckiana, we hope to see you tomorrow, as we work together to raise awareness and necessary funds to support the more than 90,000 children and adults living with epilepsy and seizures in our service area. Thank you!!

  1. We are looking forward to the walk. It's amazing that God sent a shower this morning to cool things down a little bit. Now the high will be 93 instead of 97! God watches out for his children.
