We are asking basketball teams across the country to host an Epilepsy Awareness game as a part of the Athletes vs Epilepsy Nothin’-But-Net campaign. Your efforts will help raise much need funds and awareness for the 3.4 million people, and 460,000 children, in the U.S. who live with epilepsy. Get your SWAG BOX once your register to make a Nothin’ But Net game happen in your community.
Here’s how it works:
It’s so easy and so much fun!
- Donate to the Cause! Ask friends, family, and your community to make a donation to the Epilepsy Foundation’s Athletes vs Epilepsy initiative. Either by check or make a donation to your school’s fundraising page that you will create through Athletes vs Epilepsy.
- Show Your Purple Pride! Ask your team, cheerleaders, student body and fans to wear purple to the game.
Enhance your event with a skills competition, Half-time performance or skills competition. Announce information and statistics about epilepsy as a part of your PA Announcements.
Here’s what you need to do:
3 Steps to get your Nothin’-But-Net Fundraiser on the board!
