Online PR News – 16-June-2011 – – Kyle and Rose Epilepsy (KARE) Foundation Raises $30,000 for Epilepsy and Seizure Disorders!

Over 900 supportive individuals helped raise $30,000 on June 4th 2011 at The KARE Foundation’s 1st Annual E-Race Epilepsy 5K Run and Walk at the Philadelphia Zoo.

Opening ceremony commenced with the National Anthem sung by Cory Singer, an established 16 year old high school student from South Plainfield, NJ, followed by the Bryn Mawr Mainliners, and Ben Tyler. Then 900 runners and walkers, including Team Target, made their way through the Philadelphia Zoo to support the KARE Foundation. Participants visited with sponsors and vendors at the Plaza, where connections and friendships were made in support of the KARE Foundation.

Monies raised will help start support groups in the Lower NJ Area and fund future events for the purpose of building the KARE Foundation. Sadly, epilepsy causes over 50,000 deaths a year. Over 200,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year.

President of Your Event Solutions LLC, Jill Pavel, was paramount in bringing the event together and says: “We are just getting started! The support from the Greater Philadelphia Area was overwhelming and we are excited for our upcoming events for The Kare Foundation.org.”

Rose Stolarz, founder of the KARE Foundation added: “We are thrilled with our inaugural events success. Thank you to Jill Pavel and her team at Your Event Solutions LLC and all of the supporters who came out to help us raise money for Epilepsy!”

Special thank you to our sponsors: Team Target, 94 WYSP, MetroKids, ABC 6-Philly, MyPhl 17, and special guest Geese Chasers from American Chopper.
