Help Change the Conversation about epilepsy and seizures by virtually running or walking, donating, or fundraising for Empowering Epilepsy’s Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon Team! This is one of Empowering Epilepsy’s versions of a run/walk fundraiser for epilepsy in Northeast Ohio!

The Empowering Epilepsy Team in the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon benefits Empowering Epilepsy, our grassroots nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that was founded by people in Northeast Ohio who understand epilepsy and seizures first hand. It allows us to fundraise to support our ongoing programs and services.

Due to COVID-19, this has been turned into a virtual event. If you have already registered, you can run virtually, or save your registration for the 2021 race.


To register to run or walk:

  1. Click on the tickets link above.
  2. Choose your race.
  3. After entering some information, it will ask you Add registrant to a team? – Click Yes, add this registrant to a team created by someone else. Then Choose Empowering Epilepsy as your team.


When they ask: Enter promo code or gift code, enter EE2020 to receive a 10% discount off of your registration.

From there, please donate to Empowering Epilepsy and/or create a fundraising team to ask your family and friends to support your run!
