Welcome to My 2021 Sharon's Ride.Run.Walk. San Diego Fundraising Page!
Sharon's Ride.Run.Walk San Diego is a 15-mile Bike Ride or 5K Run/Walk that is very important to me. I am raising money to help The Epilepsy Foundation of San Diego County so they can provide wraparound support services and programs at no cost to individuals and families affected by epilepsy. Please help me support this cause and spread awareness for epilepsy.
Khloe was diagnosed when she was 2 1/2 with Childhood absence epilepsy which is a condition characterized by recurrent seizures (epilepsy). This condition begins in childhood, usually between ages 3 and 8. Affected children have absence seizures (also known as petit mal seizures), which are brief episodes of impaired consciousness that look like staring spells.
We have been lucky that her seizures have been well controlled via medication and she is a thriving, energetic, caring, loving, 11 year old.
Please help us by supporting the Epilepsy Foundation of San Diego!
