We are thrilled to have this exciting trail run be the first event in our 2020 Going Purple for Epilepsy Awareness and Fundraising Campaign to support the Epilepsy Foundation of Connecticut!
Due to social distancing guidelines, we are only able to accept 100 entrants for this year's run. Start times will be staggered and all COVID-19 guidelines will be followed.
Register by September 25th to guarantee a t-shirt.
We are not able to host an in-person painting session this year. A limited number of purple pumpkin decorating kits will be available to take home. Please indicate if you would like a kit when completing your registration.
All proceeds from this event stay here in Connecticut!
We are pleased to announce the results of the 2nd Annual Purple Pumpkin 5K For Epilepsy. We had 100 runners and raised $8,500 for this year's trail run!
The funds raised from this event will be used to support our programs and services that serve people with epilepsy and their families throughout Connecticut. We continue to be the leading resource of information, education, advocacy, and support for the estimated 36,000 people with epilepsy in Connecticut.
Congratulations to the winners!
