In addition to all the fun and fundraising, the Magnolia Run plays an important role in educating the public about epilepsy and creating greater awareness of the disorder. The Magnolia Run was selected again by WSB-TV’s Family to Family project. Their support played a major role in this endeavor through the promotional segment done prior to the race, spotlighting on their website and the support and coverage on the day of the race! EFGA was also fortunate to have many vendors spotlighting epilepsy-related services in the metro area. Signs along the race route also shared information and dispelled many common myths about epilepsy.
