We are happy to announce a new partnership with Uber!

The Epilepsy Foundation of Georgia and Uber are joining forces to help epilepsy patients access transportation at no cost. Through the end of 2016, when Uber riders enter the Promotional Code “EPILEPSY”, they will get $20 off an Uber ride and Uber will donate $5 back to the Epilepsy Foundation of Georgia, (EFGA). EFGA will be using the funds to provide transportation to epilepsy patients at little or no cost so that patients can successfully live their lives with one less limitation. This promotional code is valid for use nationwide!

Quotes regarding new partnership:

Stephanie Boswell, patient: “The partnership between Uber and EFGA is a perfect match. No question. The service has not only changed my life, it has changed those around me. I am able to fulfill the needs for my family on a daily basis. Uber has given me a level of independence and changed my outlook on my driving limitation. Knowing that Uber is just a few minutes away gives my whole family a new perspective and a bright future.”

Jim Hlavenka, Board Member: “We are thrilled to announce this partnership between two innovative organizations focused on serving our local communities in creative and meaningful ways. There is a direct unmet need for epilepsy patients when it comes to affordable and convenient transportation, and Uber is the direct solution to this area of extreme need.”

Aly Clift, Executive Director of EFGA: “EFGA is so excited to have this new partnership with Uber. One of the challenging aspect of living with epilepsy is transportation. Until now, we had no program available to fill this need. Through Uber’s involvement, people living with epilepsy will be able to live a more independent lifestyle.”

Keith Radford, General Manager of Uber Atlanta: “Uber Atlanta is very proud to partner with the Epilepsy Foundation of Georgia. We look forward to helping the Foundation meet its worthy mission of enhancing the quality of life for so many of those living with epilepsy who need reliable, convenient transportation.”
