Team story

<h2 style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: #ff0000;">Event details: Hadrian&rsquo;s Wall 25 Mile Trek Challenge</span></h2> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>One wall, one epic adventure in just one <span style="background-color: #ffffff;">weekend!</span></strong></p> <p>Hi everybody thanks for visiting our website that has been set up on behalf of my daughter Sophie who tragically passed away on July 14th at the age of 18 years. Sophie suffered with Epilepsy since the age of 14 but it worsened over the last 2-3 months.</p> <p>Very little is known about this condition and the devastating effects it can have on the sufferers and their families which is why we are trying to raise as much money as possible to raise awareness of, and educate people to the causes, symptoms and treatments of Epilepsy. There are so many forms of Epilepsy so there needs to be alot of research into this.</p> <p>Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) Epilepsy is a very individual condition that affects everybody in different ways. Many people find that their epilepsy does not get in the way of their everyday life. In fact, up to 70 in every 100 people with epilepsy could have their seizures fully controlled, with the right treatment. Epilepsy Action believes that it is very important for people with epilepsy and their families to be aware of the risks associated with epilepsy. A small number of people have a risk of sudden death due to their epilepsy. It is important to remember that the risks of dying because of epilepsy are&nbsp;low. What&rsquo;s more, there are things you can do to make the risks even lower. Most people who know somebody who has died due to epilepsy say they wished they had known more about the risks before the person died.</p> <p style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;<strong>We want to raise awareness and prevent the risk of sudden death associated with epilepsy </strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Please donate as much or as little as you can afford as it all helps. We don&rsquo;t want Sophie&rsquo;s life to have been in vain.</strong></p>
