epilepsy walk



We participated in the Louisville epilepsy walk today and it was great! It started storming first thing in the morning which turned out to be a great blessing because it kept it cooler for a while longer. Once the sun came out it heated up pretty quickly though.

The walk itself was only an hour and we cut if short and went to the cool exhibits until the awards ceremony.

Our team consisted of 25 walkers and we raised over $1000!!

In total the walkers raised over $50,000 for the foundation!

We had a really great time seeing lots of our friends, family and even several nurses from the hospital.

Thank you all so much for spending your morning with us and raising so much money in honor of Emily!!


We love you all !

Emily ready for the walk. I tied a few fans to her stroller to keep her cool.

  1. Awesome pictures!
    We had a GREAT time! We will also be ready more for next year. It was sooo much fun! The morning was a lot cooler than we thought it would be, but it got hotter in the afternoon. I'm glad they had the walk early.
    Everyone did a great job. GO TEAM EMILY!
