London Seize the Day 2019 Thank You

Somehow “Thank You” does not seem like enough! But…here goes!

On behalf of all the staff, volunteers, Board Members and clients at ESWO, we would like to extend the biggest thank you ever to everyone for their contributions and continued support of our 6th Annual Seize the Day! 

On September 29, 2019 together, nearly 500 participants gathered at the Graham Family Eco Park to participate in a 2.5K walk/ 5K run. Just over $69,500 was raised to help fund ESWO's support and education programs! We are happy to announce that this was a record year! Many new families joined the walk this year in honour or memory of someone affected by seizures & epilepsy. Great job everyone!
