Participate In Walk To End Epilepsy May 18

WAYNE – Later this week join Wayne State College students during the Walk to End Epilepsy.

A newly formed Nebraska Chapter of the Epilepsy Foundation will sponsor the walk on Saturday, May 18 at 8 a.m.

According to a release from the Office of College Relations at Wayne State College, the walk will start at the Lincoln Stars Arena (Icehouse) at 1880 Transformation Drive in Lincoln.

The Walk to End Epilepsy is a grassroots community and fundraising event that provides people the opportunity to speak up about epilepsy, to learn more and connect with others affected by epilepsy at a fun-filled event. There is a non-competitive 5K Walk complete with fun activities for all ages.

Wayne State College students of Dr. Dendinger’s Managerial Communications class have been hard at work creating a communications plan to increase statewide training for teachers, nurses and first responders in the recognition as well as response to seizures.

The Epilepsy Foundation reports epilepsy happens to between 2.5 to 3 million people in the United States. One in 26 of those diagnosed will experience recurring seizures.

These students have chosen to put this project together raising awareness for a cause they said they have become passionate about.
