We’re raising $3,000 to help people with epilepsy in Oman & Ethiopia.
Being an epilepsy survivor myself, my lifelong goal is to raise awareness and educate society about this condition; this is our driving force and why the ub-cool team and I take part in physical challenges such as Marathons, Spartan races, and other events around the world. By doing this we want to inspire and motivate people to overcome their own personal challenges.
What is our aim? We want to raise $3000 to support people with epilepsy in Oman and for the Epilepsy Research Collaboration of Bonn and Addis Ababa University run by Professor Christian Elger.
Epilepsy is not just one neurological condition, but a group of many different 'epilepsies' with one thing in common: a tendency to have seizures that start in the brain. Anyone can develop epilepsy, at any time of life. It happens in people of all ages, races and social classes. Epilepsy is most commonly diagnosed in children and in people over 65.
How will the money raised be spent?
*Improvement of the diagnostic equipment at Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
*Increasing number of trips of experts (epileptologists, neurologists, etc) to Addis Ababa
*Educating physicians, EEG assistants, and other medical staff at the University of Bonn
*Half of the funds raised will go towards epilepsy research at Omani hospitals
How can you help? The ub-cool team and I are asking you to donate to help us meet our goal. Every penny will count!
