Who is Sharon?

Sharon's Ride.Run.Walk for Epilepsy is dedicated to Sharon Rosenfeld, a nurse and teacher, who cared deeply about epilepsy and who advocated helmet safety.  She was killed on a cross country ride in 1993.  Dr. William Rosenfeld and Susan Lippmann, neurologists who specialize in epilepsy, created the event in honor of Dr. Rosenfeld's sister.


Why Sharon's Run Ride Walk?

All money raised goes directly to the Epilepsy Foundation of Connecticut.  When you join us in Sharon's Ride.Run.Walk for Epilepsy, you're helping to raise the quality of life for people with epilepsy as well as educating the community concerning the importance of wearing a helmet.
