_ The 2017 Sharon’s Ride.Run.Walk for Epilepsy is one of the nation’s largest and longest ongoing epilepsy education and awareness events, dedicated to the memory of Sharon Rosenfeld, a nurse and teacher who cared deeply about epilepsy and advocated helmet safety.
Helmets worn during head injury-prone sports can prevent many new cases of epilepsy.
5% of new cases of epilepsy and 75% of bicycle-related fatalities among children could be prevented by wearing a helmet.
The Annual Sharon's Ride.Run.Walk offers a little something for the whole family to support the Epilepsy Foundation of Hawaii's mission. The 50K Bike Ride course takes you through Hawaii Kai and the 5K/10K timed run goes into Diamond Head Crater and all events begin and end at Kapiolani Community College with an awards ceremony held immediately after the 5K/10K race. Enjoy the morning at the base of Diamond Head and support the 15,000 individuals living with epilepsy in Hawaii.

About the Sharon's Ride.Run.Walk
Epilepsy is the 4th most common neurological condition after migraines, stroke, and Alzheimer’s disease. Epilepsy is more prevalent than autism spectrum disorders, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and cerebral palsy combined. With your support, we can continue to raise awareness of epilepsy and advocate for the individuals living with epilepsy and their families across the state. The Epilepsy Foundation of Hawaii (EFH) hosts the annual Sharon's Ride.Run.Walk to support care, advocacy and community epilepsy education and awareness in the Hawaiian Islands. This is a family oriented event to raise awareness about epilepsy and funds to support our mission to lead the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy. The Sharon's Ride.Run.Walk is dedicated to the memory of Sharon Rosenfeld, a nurse and teacher who cared deeply about epilepsy and advocated helmet safety.
Come out and support the 15,000 individuals living with epilepsy in Hawaii!
