Supporter Karen braved the Thames Path 50km challenge to raise vital funds for epilepsy this September.
Starting at 8.30am on a sunny, bright morning Karen began the walk from Bishops Path and enjoyed the beautiful scenery and meeting other trekkers along the way. Almost 12 hours later, Karen reached the finish line in Runnymede, earning that well-deserved medal!
Karen chose to take on this challenge as she lives with epilepsy: “At the age of 35, I suffered my first seizure. Although diagnosed with epilepsy I am fortunate that for many years I have been medically controlled but am aware that there are many people who do not have this protection. I can’t imagine living day to day with such uncertainty. Through the work that Epilepsy Research UK supports I hope that one day all sufferers will at least have this safeguard”.
Karen raised an incredible £1250 for Epilepsy Research UK – thank you to Karen and to all her donors for their generosity.
