We’re excited to return to De Anza Cove in Mission Bay, San Diego, to host our annual event that gets San Diego active in the name of epilepsy awareness. Rally your friends and family to come out and show their love for San Diego’s epilepsy community. 

This fun-filled, outdoor community event consists of a 5K run/walk, a 15-mile bike ride and a community picnic. Pre-register online or register onsite as an individual or as a team.

Pre-registration is $45 until Friday, March 31, 2023. After that, pre-registration is $50.

Sharon’s Ride.Run.Walk is also made possible with the help of volunteers, and the charitable support of sponsors and individual and team donors. 

Volunteer for Sharon’s Ride.Run.Walk. Volunteers are needed to help with a variety of event operations, from setup and breakdown, to cheering our race participants on towards the finish line. This is an ideal outdoor volunteering event, especially if you or someone you know has volunteer-hour goals for 2023.

Individuals and team leaders can donate directly at preset or custom-filled levels or set up their own fundraising page to help us reach our fundraising goal of $100,000. 

When the average cost of care for a person living with epilepsy in the U.S. can be as much as $15,000/year, the free resources provided by the Epilepsy Foundation of San Diego County are invaluable.
