|As a registered charity, the BC Epilepsy Society relies on people like you to help deliver programs, produce resources, and fund research 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.
It's not too early to start recruiting your team for our 6th Annual 5K Poker Walk on Sunday, May 25, 2014. A pledge collection portal will be available a few months before the event.
