About Athletes vs Epilepsy

Athletes vs. Epilepsy is a nationwide program for athletes of all ages and levels, coaches, volunteers and fans.  The goal is to raise awareness, build participation, and help fund the Epilepsy Foundation’s mission to stop seizures and SUDEP, find a cure, and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy through efforts including education, advocacy, and research to accelerate ideas into therapies. The initiative helps to bring epilepsy awareness to all sports through participation by athletes of all ages and skill levels as well as their supportive friends, family, and fans.

The Epilepsy Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that people with epilepsy can experience all that life has to offer. Athletes vs. Epilepsy affirms this positive message and embodies it through action and the belief that anyone, regardless of athletic talent, can help to fundraise and raise awareness.

YOU can make a difference in your life and in the lives of others. Donate to the cause through our team fundraising page or join the Athletes vs. Epilepsy initiative.  Visit for more information and opportunities to get involved.

About The Wellness Institute

The Epilepsy Foundation’s Wellness Institute believes that everyone, including people with all types of epilepsy and associated conditions, deserves to live a full and productive life to the best of their abilities.  By raising awareness about healthy behaviors, promoting evidence-based programs and activities, partnering with local and national organizations, and disseminating research, we hope to share with you practical and effective strategies to enhance your wellbeing and overall quality of life. Please visit the Wellness Institute for more information.

The Wellness Institute and its Athletes vs Epilepsy Ambassador, Jenny LaBaw, is honored to share our knowledge with you through the Summer Fitness Challenge.  We hope that the information we provide will enhance your health and wellness journey.

Before getting started, there may be a few things you need to consider.   

  • Visit your primary care doctor and get a check-up.
  • Ask about exercising – what you can do and what you should avoid.
  • Don’t start any new activity or exercise without consulting your doctor.
  • If you have epilepsy, talk to the neurologist treating your epilepsy about the impact of exercise on your seizures.  

While the Summer Fitness Challenge is a unique opportunity for you to improve your wellbeing, it is important that you do so under the guidance of your medical team.

We wish you much success on your fitness journey!
