Be a Team Captain

Team Captains are the heart of Walk to END EPILEPSY® and the 2.6 Million Mile Challenge, and it’s easy to do! We recommend teams of 10, however there is no required number of people. Tell your friends, family, and co-workers why you are walking and ask them to join you — you’ll have a team in no time!

Once you register as a Team Captain, you’ll rally your team members to help them fundraise, keep them motivated, and have fun fighting for a great cause in the process. You will also have access to a Team Fundraising Page and numerous tools to make your team a success.

Join an Existing Team 

We are stronger together! Register to join an existing team and work with others to increase awareness about epilepsy and raise funds. If you’ve already registered and want to join a team – no problem! Just contact us and we’ll take care of you.

Once on your team, invite others to register for the Walk to END EPILEPSY or support your efforts by making a donation. It’s easy to show your support!

Participate as an Individual 

You can make an impact by participating on your own at the Walk to END EPILEPSY. Set a fundraising goal, set an activity goal for the 2.6 Million Mile Challenge, and get started! Your Participant Center and online fundraising tools provide you with a quick and easy way to ask your family, friends, and contacts to support your efforts.

Should you later change your mind and want to start a team - no problem, we are happy to help! In the meantime, register and invite others to make a donation supporting your efforts.
