We will all be Stronger Together Thursday, November 7.
This is a very special one day event that will honor people with epilepsy at the "happiest place on earth." While we celebrate a community of strength and unity, this event will also help raise money for Epilepsy Support Network of Orange County, as a 501(c)3 event partner dedicated to helping people who live with epilepsy. When you purchase your tickets for November 7, we hope you will consider choosing Epilepsy Support Network as your group to support.
It doesn't have to be over, we will continue to take donations for the Epilepsy Walk Orange County. Go online or mail your donations to ESNOC, 9114 Adams Ave, #288, Huntington Beach, CA 92648.
Thank You to our Committee Members, Corporate Sponsors, In Kind Sponsors, Wish List Sponsors, Team Captains and their teammates, Volunteers, the City of Costa Mesa, all the people who made it happen, and those who attended - you where the fun!

Epilepsy affects 32,000 people in Orange County. For 11,000 of these individuals medical treatment has been ineffective and they continue to have seizures. Because epilepsy is a complex neurological condition, many times people need help sorting through medical, educational, social and emotional aspects of the condition. Most of what the general public knows is based on harmful oversimplification, myths and outdated information, further perpetuating the problem.
The Epilepsy Support Network of Orange County is improving the outlook for people diagnosed with epilepsy. We are accomplishing this by providing the highest quality epilepsy specific educational programs as well as support group services. ESN's energetic and experienced staff members have succeeded in accomplishing our goal of seizure free lives for many of our members. We look forward to being your partner as you pursue seizure control. Contact us immediately and let us help you on your journey to a much improved quality of life!
Mission Statement: The ESNOC is committed to building a community of support to improve the lives of those affected by epilepsy through education, programs and advocacy.
Core Values: Compassion, Respect, Integrity,
Excellence and Community Benefit.
