January 27, 2013 the Epilepsy Foundation of Hawaii will be hosting the 11th annual Sharon's Ride for Epilepsy. Sharon's
Ride is a unique memorial to Sharon Rosenfeld, a nurse and teacher who cared deeply about epilepsy and epilepsy patients who
was killed during a cross country bicycle ride in 1993. Sharon's Ride Run Walk for Epilepsy was started in 1996
in St. Louis, Missouri by Dr. William Rosenfeld and Dr. Susan Lippmann, neurologists who specialize in epilepsy and who created
the event to honor the memory of Dr. Rosenfeld's sister. Sharon's Ride takes place at 7 sites across the country
and we are honored that Dr. Rosenfeld and his family will be in Honolulu for our event!
for Epilepsy is a family oriented fund and awareness raising event that offers a challenge for experienced athletes as well
as a fun day for the rest of us. There will be a 35 Km (about 25 mile) bike ride from Kapiolani Community College
to Kalama Valley or continue to Kailua with your choice of 100 Km (62 mile) or 75 km (50 mile) loop. For younger kids
we have a bike obstacle course and bike safety program! As usual we will also have a 1 mile walk that is freindly to
wheelchairs, strollers, and pets on a leash and again this year we will also have a timed 5 Km and 10 Km runs into Diamond
Head Crater. Food, fun, and activities for the keiki will be on hand before and after the ride and we will have plenty of
prizes! Participants are encouraged to bring their families, their pets, their bikes, scooters or wheelchairs. Participation
by disabled individuals is encouraged. Family and team participation is also encouraged with prizes and awards for biggest
teams and top individual and team fundraisers!
All proceeds collected locally from the event will go to the
Epilepsy Foundation of Hawaii, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing services to individuals with seizure disorders.
It is estimated that over 15,000 Hawaii residents suffer from epilepsy and over 75,000 people are touched by it. Since
1971 the EFH has provided information and educational services to individuals and groups with questions pertaining to epilepsy.
