Licking Heights Girls Soccer VS Epilepsy!

Epilepsy is a neurological condition that affects the brain and causes seizures. 3.4 million people in the United States have Epilepsy, as well as 65 million Worldwide. 

Our 3rd Annual Athletes VS Epilepsy Game will take place on Wednesday, September 13 in honor of one our former teammates and all she taught us!

Kaitlyn Wells joined the LH Girls Soccer program in 2019 as a Freshman taking on the role of Team Manager. In 2020, she was offered a spot on the team due to her hard work and dedication. That season Kaitlyn had a seizure while training on the track. Despite this challenge, she didn't give up and continued with a positive attitude. In 2021, while riding the school bus back from participating in the annual parade with the team, Kaitlyn had another seizure in front of her teammates. That seizure led to 7 more that day. And Kaitlyn, she continued on and strived to make changes to continue to be a part of this team! That same year is when the LH Girls Soccer program decided to show Kaitlyn the same strength and dedication and began the Athletes VS Epilepsy Annual Game to raise awareness to her condition.

Our goal in raising funds for Epilepsy was to support the education, safety and training within the schools for those living with Epilepsy. At that time, it was not required for Ohio  schools to have this kind of training. In the last 2 years the LH Girls Soccer program have succeeded in their goal and raised over $4,000 to fund the training for 4 Seizure Safe Schools so far! And the best news, not only are we continuing to raise these important funds, it is now REQUIRED for Ohio schools to be seizure safe under the newly signed SARAH's LAW.
