2015 Magnolia Run: Teaming Up Against Seizures

An unseasonably cool day provided excellent race conditions for the more than 1,600 participants in the 32nd Annual Magnolia Run and Wall on August 22nd. The combination of individual runners/walkers with 82 teams formed for the event, raising $149,000 to benefit the programs offered by EFGA.

The start line featured a rainbow of colors as many teams created their own shirts, persons with epilepsy were recognized with a special purple shirt, volunteers had their own teal shirts and everyone received a 2015 blue and yellow Magnolia Run shirt at the end of both the 5k and one mile races.

We want to thank the many vendors and epilepsy-related organizations who came to show their support for the epilepsy cause and distribute educational materials to those in attendance. Also, a huge thank you to our sponsors – which were at an all time high this year!

Still have donations that need to be made?? We will not close out the Magnolia Run until mid-September, so you still have time to get those in. If you have checks or cash, you can mail them to the EFGA office! (make your donations on the Magnolia Run site, events.epilepsyga.org)
