Event Description

The 21st Freedom Run from Epilepsy

5K & 10K Timed Run or a 1-mile Untimed Walk, Stroll, Skip, or Roll

Celebrate with us in our annual Freedom Run or Walk to take action together in the fight for seizure freedom. Participants connect and raise money while sharing stories and spreading awareness. Run, walk, or form a team. Join us for an in-person 5K/10K time run, 1-Mile untimed walk (or stroll, skip, roll, etc.), or as part of a meetup with local friends and family. Hawaii's summer weather makes it a beautiful early start to the 4th of July holiday.

Held on Monday, July 04, 2023, at Kailua High School - 451 Ulumanu Dr. in Kailua on O'ahu. It will be a fun and outdoor event, supporting a great mission: leading the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and accelerating therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives.

Since 1971, the Epilepsy Foundation of Hawaii (EFH) has provided education and support services to individuals impacted by epilepsy, their families and friends, and organizations interested in learning more about this common neurological condition. EFH’s mission is achieved only through partnerships will all of you! Through these partnerships, we are able to provide epilepsy education, seizure recognition, first aid training, and advocacy to ensure effective change, referral, support, and research to accelerate ideas into therapies. Join any of our events to support important community education programs here in Hawaii. 

While you're not required to fundraise in order to participate, the Freedom Run/Walk from Epilepsy makes fundraising easy and fun!
