Statement from our Fundraising Team

SUDEP Action is incredibly grateful for all the support we received from our fundraisers over the past year taking part in virtual challenges and events to continue to support the charity while COVID-19 restrictions have been in place.

With restrictions now starting to lift we are looking forward to supporting you with taking on live challenges as they resume in 2021.  While these events and challenges are starting up again we know that they might not suit everyone and that some supporters may wish to continue with virtual activities for the time being.  Please know that the SUDEP Action fundraising team are here to support you not matter which challenge, activity or event you choose to do.

SUDEP Action have partnered with Run for Charity to offer charity places at 100s of different events around the UK. Take a look at each regional link for some great events local to you.

Whatever activity, challenge or event you choose to do to support SUDEP Action in 2021 we ask you to remember to do it safely and within the Government guidelines at the time.

We understand that it is important to you, our fundraisers, to be able to continue to raise vital awareness of SUDEP and epilepsy deaths, as a tribute to someone who has died suddenly.  If you find you have had to cancel or postpone an event due to safety restrictions changing suddenly, we would like to assure you that we are here to support you.
