Comrades is like epilepsy!

Ede Tyopo is a young man with epilepsy who competes in marathons. He will be raising funds for Epilepsy South Africa through the 2018 Comrades Marathon.

Ede serves as a member of the Epilepsy SA Eastern Cape Board, the National Board, the National Executive Committee and the Nicholas Project (the Epilepsy SA youth initiative).

Ede says: Epilepsy is like a marathon. You need support from those around you, but must manage your own race and persevere.

Support Ede today to realise his dream of raising R50,000 in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Epilepsy South Africa this year.
