One in 26 Challenge

Get Moving with EPI’s Hybrid Fitness Challenge!
October 1 – 26, 2023
Kick-Off Events in Rochester & Syracuse



Did you know that one in 26 people will develop epilepsy? It’s an incredible statistic that illustrates just how common this condition really is. Yet so many people know little to nothing about it and social stigmas continue to exist. This October, EPI is raising money for and awareness about epilepsy through the One in 26 Challenge.



Participants have 26 days (October 1 – 26) to run, walk, or bike 26 miles. You’re invited to join us to start this challenge at two different kick-off events in Syracuse and Rochester.

Participation is easy and you have a lot of options!

  • Individual Participation: Sign up as an individual participant and ask people to support your efforts. (You don’t need to create or join a team).
  • Team Participation: Sign up and create a team, inviting people to join your team. People may give to you and/or your team directly without signing up as a participant.
  • Join a Team: Sign up as an individual participant and join an existing team.
  • Donate: Give directly to an individual participant and/or an existing team without signing up as an individual participant. This option works well for friends and family who are unable to walk, run or bike 26 miles but would like to support others who do.
