Joey’s Song 2014
A Madison Friends of CURE and Joey’s Song fundraiser

Sunday, September 7, 2014
6:00pm

Where : The Majestic Theatre,
115 King St., Madison WI
When : Doors at 6 PM, music starts at 7 PM

Tickets : $20 in advance, $23 at the door.

Our target is $56,000 raised at this year's concert. A typical research grant to help find a cure starts at $50,000. So we are trying every year to fund one research grant and work with our partners at Madison Friends of CURE to make that happen.

It will be a night of "one-offs". First, indie supergroup, The Know-It-All Boyfriends, featuring Butch Vig and Duke Erikson of Garbage, along with Freedy Johnston and thier musical cohorts will play a full night of rock-n-roll classics. Normally these guys just play private affairs, for friends and family, well consider yourselves their friends, because they are going to play for you !

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.
