Seize the Day Your Way!
The 7th Annual Seize the Day Event Takes on Epilepsy!
On Saturday, September 23, 2023 Epilepsy Southwestern Ontario (ESWO) will host its 7th Annual Seize the Day 5k Run / 2.5k Walk in Windsor at Malden Park to raise funds to provide support and educational services for people living with epilepsy, their families and their communities throughout Southwestern Ontario.
Registration at 9:00am, Run starts at 10:30am.
If you’re unable to join us in person consider joining us virtually by walking/running September 22-24, 2023. 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 welcome 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.
