Violet Femmes Relay Team
Ragnar Relay Race

Friday, September 12, 2014 - Saturday, September 13, 2014

Cumberland, MD to Washington, DC

One in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy during their lifetime. Ten years ago, my daughter, Virginia Cooper became one of them. Now that she’s 11, my husband Matt and I estimate that she's had more than 10,000 seizures, despite the medications she takes daily. Like Virginia, nearly half of the three million Americans with epilepsy do not have complete seizure control or only achieve seizure control at the cost of debilitating side effects from medications.

One of the ways I cope with the stress of raising a child with epilepsy is by running. I often run with friends, who often ask what they can do to help. So, I asked them to join my Ragnar team.

Ragnar is a relay race. Team members run, one at a time, day and night, each taking three turns, until the team has completed the 200-mile course. We will be running from Cumberland, Maryland, to Washington, DC, September 12-13.

We’re the Violet Femmes because purple is the color of epilepsy awareness and we’re an all-female team running to benefit CURE (Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy). Founded in 1998 by parents of epilepsy patients who were frustrated with available treatments, CURE is now the leading private funder of epilepsy research.
