Taking Strides for Epilepsy Awareness

In an effort to raise awareness about epilepsy, High School West senior Marie Carpenter recently participated in a walk to raise money to support the cause. The cause is personal to her, as Marie’s younger sister Sophia has battled epilepsy for the past five years. Marie participated in an Epilepsy Awareness Walk on Oct. 14 in honor of Sophia and raised more than $2,600 for the EPIC Long Island organization. EPIC supports epilepsy education and training and research for the cause.
