|As a registered charity, the BC Epilepsy Society relies on people like you to help deliver programs, produce resources, and fund the best researchers in BC.
Some of our programs are delivered by volunteers. We rely on volunteers to govern our Society as members of our elected Board of Directors.
And, of course, through your financial support, sponsoring an event, hosting a fund raiser, making a donation, or considering us in your Will.
On May 26th, we’ll host our fifth annual 5K Poker Walk. Join our Patron, the Honourable Judith Guichon, Lieutenant Governor of BC in the Walk. Prizes will be awarded to all walkers who collect over $250 in donations.
