This past Saturday, March 31, the National Walk for Epilepsy was held in Washington, D.C. Four members from Sig Ep participated, John Houston ’14, Greg Hayes ’14, Steve Bushnell ’12 and Tom Nassr ’14. Not only did the group travel to D.C. to support the cause, but they also raised more than $1,000 for it as well. “The money raised from the National Walk for Epilepsy helps the Foundation provide services for people living with epilepsy, provide awareness programs for proper seizure recognition and first aid, provide a voice to make sure health care options for people living with seizures remain strong, and provide much needed research funding toward better treatment options and ultimately a cure,” according to the foundations website. One of the fundraisers, Steve Bushnell, suffers from epilepsy, “and brought up the walk in chapter,” said fraternity brother Greg Hayes, “Johnny, Tom, and I saw it as a great opportunity to support one of our fellow brothers all while getting to see our nation’s capital as well. The event was for a great cause, and the amount of participants there was remarkable.”
