It takes someone special to be a volunteer... How about you?

Cynthia Reynolds is the 2019 Volunteer of the Year. While she doesn’t have a direct personal connection to epilepsy, she has been involved with the organization for 30 years.

She has spent over 500 hours using her talents and time to support all of our fundraising events.- there isn’t anything she wont do for us. From selling shirts at Mud Volleyball, to setting up a raffle table at Andrew’s Golf Benefit, or registering people at the Walk to End Epilepsy, she has done it all, and she just never says "no".
