Previous Walks

The LGS Foundation held its 7th Annual Walk ‘n’ Wheel for Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome on March 26th, 2022 to raise awareness and increase funding to accelerate research on Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (LGS), a rare and often debilitating form of early-onset epilepsy. Approximately 1,000,000 children and adults worldwide have LGS.
 
The 2022 annual #WalkForLGS raised over $48,000, nearly 78% of our $60k fundraising goal!
 
​Although great strides have been made, more work needs to be done.
 
We are not done yet…
 
With only a tiny fraction of public and private funds going towards research on LGS, families of the more than one million people with LGS worldwide worry that lifesaving, stabilizing treatment may not come to fruition in their loved ones lifetime. The LGS Foundation’s Cure LGS 365 Research Grants Program is combating these fears.
Hundreds of  LGS families and community members came together on June 5th, 2021 to Step Towards a Cure for LGS! Together our community pledged Over 1 Million Steps and Raised Over $60,000 for Research into Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome.
