Dozens lace up shoes in fight against epilepsy

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Dozens laced up their shoes in the fight against epilepsy.

The Flame of Hope 5K was held Saturday morning at Fifth Third Field.

The walk is designed to support those living with seizures or epilepsy and raise awareness.

Following the walk, people honored those living with epilepsy and paid tribute to those who have died from the disease.

A portion of the proceeds will be used to send several children with epilepsy to Camp Flame Catcher. The camp is designed to give kids with epilepsy a typical camping experience that their friends enjoy with the added benefit of trained epilepsy specialists. Last year, the event helped send 14 children to camp.
