Local QCA chapter working toward “not another moment lost to seizures”

Davenport, IA – The Quad City Area chapter of the Epilepsy Foundation of North/Central Illinois, Iowa and Nebraska has set Saturday, March 31st as the date for the 2012 Walk For Epilepsy. The event will be held here at NorthPark Mall in front of Dillard’s.

This fundraising and awareness event is open to teams and individuals with awards for various levels of participation. A minimum level of $100.00 in pledges is requested with no additional registration fee. There are also team sponsorship opportunities available. For applications, registration or questions, contact David Umphrey, outreach services coordinator, at (309) 373-0377 or by emailing This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

On the day of the event, registration/check-in is from 9:00-10:00 AM; the walk will be from 10:00-11:00 AM with a closing ceremony of recognition set to begin immediately following the walk. The mall court in front of Dillard’s will be the site of registration/check-in and closing ceremonies.

“Epilepsy is a condition that continues to be initially misunderstood by those that deal with it as well as by the general public,” said Umphrey. “We assist anyone managing, or providing care for those living, each day with epilepsy.

“This event also helps educate anyone that has not dealt with the condition personally,” he added. “We show that people with epilepsy can live with not another moment lost to seizures.”
