Our goal is to donate $1M+ every year directly to individuals & families fighting Epilepsy.

Athletes4Epilepsy is a nonprofit that wants to partner with you for your next (or first) 5k, half-marathon, or further, to raise money to directly help with the high costs of living with Epilepsy.


Your money creates an immediate impact on the day-to-day of those who need it most.

We know firsthand the financial impact of living with this incurable disease. We also know there are many awesome charities who are funding research and working towards finding a cure, which is why we want to push you to be active and healthy while raising money for a great cause.

Your money will be given as a tax-free grant for financial support to individuals and families who need help paying for ambulance fees, medication, ER visits, neurology specialists, and so much more.

All donations go to the Athletes4Epilepsy Fund where grants are distributed based on applications submitted & board approval.


After my first seizure, I didn’t
really understand my life was
about to change forever.

My name is Kyle Borchardt, I am the Founder of Athletes4Epilepsy and I have Epilepsy. I am 34-years old and have been battling Tonic-Clonic Seizures since 2001. I have had over 75 of these seizures and hundreds of smaller episodes.
