Geoff began working with the Epilepsy Foundation in 2008. Several years prior, his grandmother began having seizures due to complications from brain surgery. He was asked to attend the National Walk for Epilepsy in Washington, D.C. as an NFL player in support of his grandmother. He joined fellow NFL players Alan Faneca and Jason Snelling as a spokesman for the Foundation in hopes of raising awareness and successfully overcoming misunderstanding and fear surrounding seizures.
