WE'RE BACK!

38th MAGNOLIA RUN and WALK for EPILEPSY is back in PERSON

Our 38th annual Magnolia Run and Walk will be held IN PERSON on Saturday, August 21, in the beautiful city of Sandy Springs. Join us for a fun-filled day for the whole family!

The Magnolia Run is EFGA’s longest-running fundraiser, supporting those living with epilepsy in the state of Georgia for 38 years! We cannot express our gratitude enough to the entire epilepsy community for supporting us this long. Thank you to the friends and family of loved ones living with epilepsy who continuously support this event! The 2020 Magnolia Run was a huge success, thanks to your support for our one-time virtual events.

A quick reminder that Magnolia Run & Walk is an outdoor event held in a large open space that can safely accommodate a large group of people.
Here is a list of precautions we are taking this year:
  • Scheduled packet pickups for team captains throughout the week before Magnolia Run (dates and times TBD)
  • One way entry, parallel lines at the day of registration (so people do not cross paths)
  • Face masks encouraged (specifically for those not vaccinated)
  • Socially distanced vendor tables, team tents, kid’s zones
  • Hand sanitizer provided in all areas
  • The start line is spaced out to accommodate a single start time. For those being timed, we will utilize real-time timing chips that activate as you cross the start line
  • Walkers encouraged to line up towards the back of the starting area
YOUR PARTICIPATION HELPS EVERYONE

MAGNOLIA RUN SUPPORTS YEAR-ROUND EFFORTS

The event provides crucial financial support for the Epilepsy Foundation of Georgia’s programs and services, including epilepsy education, seizure first aid and recognition, an emergency medication assistance fund, an employment program, youth and adult summer camp scholarship, and much-needed advocacy and awareness. Your support will help make a difference in the lives of more than 110,000 Georgians living with epilepsy today.
