Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Epilepsy Awareness is a problem worldwide. 65 million people have this seizure disorder and need help understanding what it is and how to deal with its many issues. There are stigmas associated with seizures and epilepsy that prevent people from talking openly. There are many new treatments, cures and therapies that need to be explained to sufferers so they can be helped.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organization plans to promote awareness through social media and monthly meet-ups. A number of fundraising activities are planned for the fiscal year.

There are existing organizations that focus on this and we will partner with them when we can. Learning what their needs are is the first step. Attending Epilepsy Awareness Day at the Disneyland Resort will accomplish this step. From this launching point we plan to hold events to raise awareness and funds throughout our fiscal year.

Our organization has communication skills and the membership numbers to reach out to a great number of supporters in order to accomplish these goals. Partnering with local organizations like Chick-Fil-A and the International Surfing Museum will allow us to hold several Epilepsy Awareness events across Orange County. We intend to bring the message up and down the coast to the other surf clubs. The reach of these organization goes from Santa Cruz to San Diego.

The organization has a long track record of contributing annually to many different charitable causes and organizations. Our fiscal year started in September and so far we have had one fundraiser during the Surf City 10 in October where we received a donation of $250 for our causes.
