We are getting excited to see you and walk around Lake Burley Griffin this Sunday to bring awareness to epilepsy in our community.

Did you know that 8000+ Canberrans will be diagnosed with epilepsy in their lifetime? Thank you for doing your part in brining awareness to the condition and participating on Sunday.

 We have now reached 10% of our fundraising goal – we are aiming to reach $15,000 to help keep the doors of Epilepsy ACT open.

We have a wonderful prize for the highest fundraiser.

Thanks to Ladina Photography you can win a Family Photoshoot if you are the highest Fundraiser at the start of the walk.

Second highest fundraiser will win a voucher from The Tradies in Dickson.
