3RD ANNUAL PURPLE PUMPKIN 5K FOR EPILEPSY RAISES $15,000!
We are pleased to announce the results of the 3rd Annual Purple Pumpkin 5K for Epilepsy! We had 114 runners attend this year and raised $15,000 for people with epilepsy! It was such a beautiful morning at Wadsworth Mansion for a 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!
