Seize the Day Your Way!
The 9th Annual Seize the Day Event Takes on Epilepsy!
On Sunday, September 25, 2022 Epilepsy Southwestern Ontario (ESWO) will host its 9th Annual Seize the Day 5k Run / 2.5k Walk at the Graham Family Eco Park to raise funds to provide support and educational services for people living with epilepsy, their families and their communities throughout Southwestern Ontario.
This family fun event will include a run and walk, followed by a BBQ. Start time: 10:30am.
If you’re unable to join us in London, visit our Windsor page, or consider joining us virtually by walking/running September 23-25, 2022. We will kick off the weekend event virtually with celebrations on Facebook Live.
Whether you are participating to honour someone you sadly lost to a seizure, supporting those affected by epilepsy, or want to help raise awareness, we invite you to join us for this special occasion. If you are a marathon runner, a leisurely jogger or a causal walker… everyone is welcomed to participate! We hope you can join us and help make this annual event even bigger this year to show people living with epilepsy that they are not alone! Let’s make every step count.

What is a Virtual Run/Walk?
A virtual run is a race that can be run (walked or in a wheelchair/stroller) from any location you choose. You get to create your own route, participate at your own pace and time it yourself (if you so desire). You have from September 23-25 to complete your 2.5 or 5K.
If you’re looking for suggested routes in your community, we’ve put together a list of ideas:
