Epilepsy Alliance Freedom Walk

The Orange County Epilepsy Alliance Freedom Walk 2009 was held at Heritage Park in Irvine on Saturday, May 2nd. Tom & Sonya Mahony sponsored a team called Sean's Stompers in honor of their son, Sean, who has epilepsy. Sean's Stompers raised $5,485 and had 31 walkers, 8 of whom were Rotarians. In total the event raised $79,397 for epilepsy research, education and local assistance. "We were worried about rain on Saturday, but the sun was shining for epilepsy" said Sonya Mahony. You can still sponsor Sean's Stompers by going to the Epilepsy Alliance Freedom Walk website and making a pledge with your credit card to help stomp out epilepsy!
