EF Oklahoma W2EE | 2020

May 2 | Virtual Walk | Oklahoma City

Out of an abundance of caution, we have made the difficult decision to forego an in-person Walk to END EPILEPSY for our OKC Walk. Instead, we are hosting a Virtual Walk.  Even in times like this, seizures haven't stopped...and neither has the fight to END EPILEPSY. We hope you’ll join us in full force for our Virtual Walk to END EPILEPSY – Oklahoma City. 

Here is how you can help on March 26:
  • Tell anyone and everyone about this new initiative by sharing your version of the sample posts below on your social media channels — Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.
  • Personalize the attached sign with “ #EndEpilepsy” “1 in 26” and take a photo or include the campaign graphic (attached) – show how you are helping the community as we weather through these tough times.
  • Email and call friends, family, coworkers and share the donation link – – with as many people as you can – encouraging them to get involved. And share the attached PDF wherever possible.
  • Finally, make your $26 (or more) donation and show you are in the fight to END EPILEPSY!
