5th Annual The Big Chill-Be a Hero for Epilepsy
The Big Chill-Be a Hero for Epilepsy held on Sunday, April 15 at Bayside Park was a great success. Nearly seventy participants took a dip in the lake with water temperatures around 40 degrees. Some of the teams were formed from the Colchester Sun, Hannaford, Albany College of Pharmacy, Almartin Volvo, Champlain Oil Company, Vermont National Guards, Hickok, and Boardman, Vermont Technical College, Middlebury Rugby Club, National Weather Service, and New York Oven Pizza.
This event was a wonderful family day with temperatures in the 70's. Mike, a D.J. from Supersounds D.J. Company and Jamie from Kool 105 co-hosted the event and dedicated songs to each of the teams. The Mallets Bay Fire Department and Colchester Rescue sponsored the event and provided the safety expertise. The incredible chicken and pork barbecue was prepared by The Dutch Mill Family Restaurant and side salads were prepared by Let's Pretend Catering. The menu items for the barbecue were donated by T-Bones Restaurant, The Shelburne Meat Market, Hannaford's, and The Dutch Mill Family Restaurant.
Over $6,000.00 was raised for programs and services provided by the Epilepsy Foundation of Vermont. Please go to www.epilepsyvt.org or call 802-318-1575 to get information on epilepsy, their services or the calendar of special events. A special thanks to everyone who supported this great event

Program for Middle School Students
This spring we will schedule a series of “Seizures & You: Take Charge of the Storm” Programs, which is designed to give middle school students the latest information about epilepsy. We are excited about all of our school programs and plan on reaching more students than ever.
Our Newest Programs
The Epilepsy Foundation of Vermont launched one of it’s newest programs entitled “Seniors & Seizures Program”. We have been able to train 100 Senior Caregivers about epilepsy throughout Vermont.
We also participated in a second program entitled
“Law Enforcement Training Program.” This program ensures that Law Enforcement Personnel have a good understanding of epilepsy and seizure first aid. 120 Law Enforcement Officers and 38 Firemen have been reached so far. We are excited to continue both of these programs this year. If you would like to schedule a program, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
