The Epilepsy Foundation of New Jersey
Not another moment lost to Seizures



The Epilepsy Foundation of New Jersey, an affiliate of the National Epilepsy Foundation, is a state-wide, non-profit charitable agency dedicated to helping to improve the quality of life for people affected by epilepsy and their loved ones.

The Epilepsy Foundation of New Jersey, will ensure that people with seizures are able to participate in all life experiences; and will prevent, control and cure epilepsy through services, education, advocacy and research. They provide comprehensive support, personalized services and advocacy for individuals and their families in order to maximize their participation in society.

Quote:
Epilepsy affects one in 100 individuals and their loved ones. Unfortunately because of the stigma that is still associated with having Epilepsy, it is not often spoken about. Many do not realize that Epilepsy is more common than Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s disease and Multiple Sclerosis combined. Our staff is out in the community dispelling these myths and providing information through our statewide trainings and events. The website will be updated regularly with new information so be sure to check it frequently.

Semi big update for you all today! We have published the route outline as well as the final destination. General details of the route for this cruise can be found under the "Route" section.

We selected the Chatterbox Drive-in as the destination point for this cruise. Some of you may recall we have used this end point once before for one of the Autism runs. The great food, atmosphere and parking accommodations made it a top choice for our rally. You can click the image below to check out their website.



Waivers: The event waivers can be found under the "Additional Details" section. Everyone participating in the rally, Both Drivers and Passengers, are required to fill one out. Please populate all fields and print these ahead of time to make the registration process the morning of a lot smoother.

Spread the word! Let's get this event out there and spread the word to friends and family. Feel free to copy and paste this information on other forums to gain more attention. We have been consistently getting 100+ cars at the last couple of events. Let's make sure we match that or do better this time around! You can also find frequent updates on our Facebook Page.

RSVP List: The list has been updated as of today. If you don't see your name on our list please send us an email or PM with your information

Check back frequently for more information to come!

Last update before the rally! We have just around 100 cars who confirmed they are coming out this weekend. There is still time to increase that number by telling your family and friends! This is going to one rally to remember so don't miss out!

We will be raffling a Garmin Nuvi 1350LMT at the end of the rally this year. Grab your raffle tickets during the course of the run to have a chance to win this awesome gift!



We also have a lot of cool prizes from detailing equipment to gift cards for the winners of the poker run! Are you feeling lucky?

With that being said I don't really see any further updates coming so here are a couple of things to remember:
  • Waivers: Please fill out and print your waivers and bring them with you. Please, don't forget because we will only have a limited amount at registration. This goes for both Driver and Passenger waivers.
  • Time: Please try and plan accordingly. We will be making every attempt to leave around 9AM from the Costco lot so please be on time.
  • Gas: Fill up your tank before you arrive at the starting point. There rally is a little over 100 miles total so to avoid stopping during the middle of the run please be prepared.
  • EZ-Pass / Change: There is one toll during this course of this run. The location is the Delaware Wap Gap on the border of NJ/PA, which charges .75 cent per car.

Everyone have a safe trip to the starting point! See you all bright and early Sunday!!!

All. We deeply apologize for the late announcement, but due to the change in our weather forecast we have decided to postpone the rally for everyone's safety. We want everyone to have the best possible time at our event, but with this kind of weather it makes it extremely dangerous and miserable. Please spread the word to everyone else who you know planned on coming. Again, we are sorry but hope to see you all next Sunday on the 21st.
