“On behalf of all the staff, volunteers, Board Members and clients at Epilepsy Southwestern Ontario, we would like to extend the biggest thank you ever to everyone for their contributions and continued support of our 6th Annual Seize the Day!
On September 29, 2019 together, nearly 500 participants gathered at the Graham Family Eco Park to participate in a 2.5K walk/ 5K run. Just over $69,500 was raised to help fund ESWO’s support and education programs! We are happy to announce that this was a record year! Many new families joined the walk this year in honour or memory of someone affected by seizures & epilepsy. Great job everyone!”
“The park was gorgeous, well kept, with diverse activities and fun. It had a pond with a pier where you would walk out and see the animals in it. It had a veggie patch with tomatoes growing in it, really cool playscape, cool tightrope, nice shaded area for eating and lots of ground and forest to walk around. It was really nice! I also appreciated the easy access to parking lots”
“The space is really great for a little child to explore! The pond was lovely and there was plenty to do. We even saw a plump groundhog during our visit!”
“It was a beautiful, clean venue. I loved there was so much to do outside, with trails, room for the kids to run and play and great eating areas”
“Eco Park is an absolutely beautiful venue/setting for a family gathering. Gorgeous nature setting near water with lots of area to engage in outdoor activities (sports – volleyball, canoe), playground equipment, nature walks, large field to play soccer, football etc. I loved that they had a huge area designated for bonfires which would be great in the evening. The covered buildings supply lots of seating and indoor space as needed. It would be a wonderful space to have any type of family focused event like weddings, special anniversary/birthday gatherings and family reunions.”
“Hidden treasure!! Beautiful atmosphere.”
