Over a hundred and fifty people toed the line in Washington, North Carolina this Saturday morning.
The community gathered for a 5k and half marathon to raise money for epilepsy research. Nonprofit organization CURE (Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy) was the beneficiary in the race.
The money raised will go into searching for a cure and raising awareness for epilepsy.
“My personal goal here for the event is to educate the public and depending on certain variables people with epilepsy still can have a job,” said Race for Epilepsy founder and organizer, James Peterson.
‘Cure Epilepsy’ is set to donate around $2000.
