Epilepsy is like the Comrades Marathon!

Epilepsy is like the Comrades Marathon!

Personal message

Ede Tyopo is a young man with epilepsy who has not allowed this condition to stand in his way of achieving success as a marathon runner.  As a member of the Epilepsy South Africa National Board and National Executive Committee Ede has donated his time to run the Comrades Marathon on Sunday, 10 June 2018 from Pietermaritzburg to Durban.

You can support Ede's efforts by sponsoring him per kilometer of the race or making a donation to Epilepsy South Africa.

Ede believes epilepsy is like running the Comrades Marathon - something that can happen to anyone at any time which requires support from people around you and persistence from you!
