11th annual Big Chill - Be a Hero for Epilepsy

COLCHESTER, Vt.

By the weekend, we'll keep our fingers crossed for 50° and some sunshine. Great swimming weather! Dip your toes, or dive headfirst into Lake Champlain for a great cause!

Sunday April 22nd is the 11th Annual Big Chill - Be A Hero for Epilepsy. The Epilepsy Foundation of Vermont invites you take the plunge into a 35° Malletts Bay as part of a team or as an individual, while raising funds to support the multiple programs and services the Foundation offers.

The EFV provides support, financially, emotionally and otherwise, to people with epilepsy and their families. The EFV is available to answer questions and provide helpful resources. Last year, it started a new program to give night time seizure monitors to families with someone who has overnight seizures. The 'Ray of Light' program can pay for a care giver for a night to give parents a rest, send children with epilepsy to camp, carpet a room with hardwood floors that could be dangerous to someone suffering a seizure, etc.

Sunday, the jump will take place at 11:30 AM, with registration at 10:30 AM and a BBQ to follow at 12:30 PM. Local 22 & Local 44 has a team participating and we look forward to seeing you there!
