The Iowa Walks for Epilepsy & 5K is an event organized by the Epilepsy Foundation of Iowa. Come together and join others to raise money to help support the services and programs to people living with epilepsy in Iowa! The 5K run will be a chipped timed event again this year! Be ONE of the first 26 teams to raise $1,000 and be recognized at the event as part of the “Grand Walk Club”! This is your opportunity to impact people’s lives by raising funds as a team in honor of your loved one for people living with epilepsy in Iowa. Create a team and a fundraising team from this registration site.
ONLINE SILENT AUCTION We will hold an online silent auction at the event and will post the link prior to race day so you can start your bidding prior to the walk.
