Sharon’s Ride.Run.Walk. for Epilpsy is one of the largets epilepsy education and awareness events. It is dedicated to the memory of Sharon Rosenfeld, a nurse and teacher who cared deeply about epilepsy and advocated helmet safety.
Helmets worn during head injury-prone sports can prevent many new cases of epilepsy. 5% of new cases of epilepsy and 75% of bicycle-related fatalities among children could be prevented by wearing a helmet.
Sharon’s Ride was started by Dr. William Rosenfeld and Dr. Susan Lippman in 1995 to honor Dr. Rosenfeld’s sister, Sharon, who was killed in a bicycle accident while bicycling cross country.
Dr. Rosenfeld continues to serve as chairman of the event’s nationwide series for the past 27 years, and continues Sharon’s legacy of raising awareness about helmet safety and epilepsy.
