Our efforts to support the entire epilepsy community also include raising money for a good cause.
Through the Charity Miles app, every time someone tracks an activity such as biking, dancing, running, or walking, money will be donated to the Epilepsy Foundation. Share your progress on social media to raise awareness among your friends and family, so they may help the epilepsy community strive for the goal of zero seizures.
You have the resources to take STEPS Toward Zero, now you can start getting your steps in for a good cause.

For some, it’s pursuing new relationships. For others, it’s going on their dream vacation. We want you to share what zero equals for you on social media, using #STEPSTowardZero.
For every response, SK life science will donate $1 to the Epilepsy Foundation (up to $15,000).
