Walk About It! Walk around Hamilton lake event

$0 raised
27 Nov 2016

Walk About It! is a event to raise funds and awareness for epilepsy and those who live with epilepsy and their family/whanau/friends


The event I am wanting to promote is called Walk About It!, and it is part of our month-long campaign in November called Talk About It!, whose purpose is to encourage people to have conversations about epilepsy and mental health, to give voice to the struggles that so many people in NZ and worldwide live with (there are 47,000 people in NZ alone diagnosed with epilepsy each year, and more still that aren't diagnosed).

I am holding Walk About It! on the 27th of November to raise funds and awareness of epilepsy and the work that Epilepsy New Zealand does to improve the quality of life for those who live with epilepsy, their family/whanau, their friends and support networks.

It will start at 10am, and will consist of a lap around Hamilton Lake, starting at the Innes Common side of the lake, and will have a "purple everything" theme, seeing as Epilepsy NZ's colour is purple, and there will be spot prizes for best dressed etc, as well as a sausage sizzle and face painting.

Entry will be gold coin for families and children to register, and $20 for a team to register, with registration on the day. Thanks heaps for your help with this project, it could really make a lot of difference to a lot of people.

Epilepsy New Zealand's involvement (page creator)

I want to help be part of the movement for change in NZ when it comes to Epilepsy, so I am organising and running the event to promote awareness, because the more people know, the more that positive change can be made for people with epilepsy
