Ending Epilepsy, One Step At A Time

When the epilepsy community comes together, amazing things can happen. Even in uncertain times, like we find ourselves now, we find strength in knowing our community comes together as one to support each other.  Our virtual walks are an opportunity to still join forces, fundraise, and share our stories.  You can walk in your neighborhood, on a treadmill, or wherever else is safe to do so! 

 

What does a virtual walk look like?

The virtual walk will contain a program filled with inspiring stories from fellow Maine families that you can bring on your walk!  Whether you are walking around your neighborhood, hiking in the woods on the many beautiful trails, or even walking on a treadmill - you can enjoy the program!

We will be airing the virtual program on Facebook Live as well as YouTube Live so you have plenty of ways to tune in.  

 

How can I get involved?

Sign up and share your story with your network so you can raise awareness and funds to help Epilepsy Foundation New England continue bringing programs to the epilepsy community!

My Ombudsman

My Ombudsman is an independent program that empowers individuals, including their families and caregivers, to access their services provided by MassHealth and its managed care plans. We serve members of MassHealth plans by answering questions, providing information, investigating concerns, acting as mediators, discussing options, explaining appeals and grievance processes, and making referrals. My Ombudsman was delighted to attend last year’s Boston Walk for Epilepsy and would like to thank Epilepsy Foundation New England for the opportunity to share our information with participants in this year’s Virtual Walk. We wish everyone a safe, fun, successful Walk day and hope to see you in-person next year!
