    The Run to Erase Epilepsy 3 Mile Run/Walk Is Going Virtual!

                                           Run to Erase Epilepsy is Going Virtual!!

    Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Run to Erase Epilepsy 5K Run/Walk will be a virtual event for 2020.

    Join the Epilepsy Alliance Ohio as we host our fourth annual Run to Erase Epilepsy 5k run/walk to benefit local  services in our community. The event will be held at McFerson Park in downtown Columbus and features a great course, food, refreshments, music and awards after the race. Your support of this race will help us impact the lives of thousands of people living with seizures.

    The Epilepsy Alliance Ohio is dedicated to supporting those impacted by epilepsy in local communities by confronting the spectrum of challenges created by seizures. The Epilepsy Alliance Ohio (new name same mission) has been in existence since 1953; we provide direct services to optimize each person's understanding of epilepsy and to improve their methods of coping with epilepsy.

    We have a new program where you can earn money back on your registration simply by referring others to the event.
    Here is how it works:
     - Register yourself
     - When you receive your confirmation in your email share the unique referral link with others you know
     - When those that you refer, register using your unique referral link, you earn a credit.
     - When you have earned 5 referral credits (paid registrations), you will automatically receive $5 back on the credit card you used to originally register. After the 5 referrals have been achieved, thereafter for every paid registration that you refer you will receive $1 back.  We will only stop paying for referrals once the amount you receive back in referral money equals the amount you paid for your registration.
    Very Important - In order to receive a referral credit.  The people you refer HAVE TO use your unique referral link.  We are unable to make any manual adjustments.
    If you have any questions about this program, please contact us.  If you can't find your referral link, let us know and we can resend your confirmation to you.  You can also find your confirmation in your runsignup.com account.  This was created when you registered.  Thanks so much for your support.
