As November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month, as I know so many people affected by epilepsy, and as my friend Crystal works with the Epilepsy Foundation of Central & South Texas, I thought I’d help spread the word about this weekend’s event.
On Saturday, the foundation will be hosting the Step Up for Epilepsy SuperHero 5K Fun Run & Walk. It’s taking place at Mission County Park II (7675 Padre Drive, San Antonio, TX 78214), and it promises to be a fun and family-friendly event for geeks of all ages.
Look for appearances by The Batman of San Antonio, along with a large contingent of Whovians, a strong Imperial contingent (I’m just guessing on that one, but come on, the Empire and First Order are so hot right now), and the Express-News’s Jeanne Jakle (who’ll serve as MC, along with her husband Ross Ruediger – and I strongly encourage you to read her personal testimony about what the foundation has meant for her family).
Most of all, whether by your presence or your donation, you get to support great people and a great cause. So I hope you’lll be there, at least in spirit. And I hope you’ll spread the word.
As always, thank you for your support!
