About the event

Run, walk, or roll for our 2nd annual fun run to raise awareness for KCNA2 Epilepsy in beautiful Cook Park! All proceeds from the event go directly towards funding research around KCNA2 Epilepsy. If you would like to donate to our non-profit organization you can do so here. Currently, there is no cure or treatment for all patients, but we are working hard to find one and you can help get us there. 

What is KCNA2?
KCNA2 epileptic encephalopathy is a seizure disorder caused by a mutation on the KCNA2 potassium channel. The mutation causes the potassium channel to function improperly resulting in a variety of complications for each individual, ranging from intractable seizures to developmental and cognitive delays.
