Steps For Epp
Welcome to our team page -
Our team was created nineteen (19) years ago in honor of my brother Jeff Epperson.
Jeff lost his battle with brain cancer by the next year and since 2001 we now run this race in his honor.
We would love for you to join our team and support this very important cause. If you can join us on race day and support Steps for Epp, we would love to have you represent our team!
There are several ways in which you can join our team. You can register as a runner for the 5K, as a walker for the 1K, a virtual participant (where we just send you a race shirt). And, if you can't be there for the race, you can still support the cause and honor the memory of Jeff by donating on to our team page.
Through your generosity, team Steps for Epps has raised $149,000 for brain cancer research; we're the third highest grossing team in the history of this race and an SBTF Research grant award was issued in Jeff's name. It's called the Jeff Epperson Memorial Award.
Thank you so much for your support over the years and for your continued support.
If you are a member of this team and would like to customize this page with a special message or team photo, please contact us and we can designate you as the team captain.
I'm participating in the 18th annual Race Ror Research which occurs on Saturday, September 16, 2017 at Central Park in Atlantic Station; located near downtown Atlanta. GA. It is a 5K run, 1K fun-run/walk and a fundraising event which raises money to support brain tumor research. If you've not participated before, there's no time like the present.
You can participate by running (or walking) the course route along with me, by helping me spread the word about this fundraising event, or by making a donation toward my fundraising effort. If you're not a runner, don't worry, many of the registrants are not runners. Instead many of the registrants are brain tumor patients who are just happy to be alive and happy to be able to participate in this event.
Just so you know, the Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation is recognized as as a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization and as a public charity. Donations to the SBTF in support of my fundraising efforts are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Your support will have a positive impact on the life of a brain tumor patient because it generate awareness about this disease and will help to fund much needed brain tumor research.
Sadly, many of us don't realize how scary a brain tumor diagnosis is until someone we know is told "you have a brain tumor" or "you have brain cancer".
Oh, and one more thing, did you know you can double your donation through employer matching programs? Be sure to check with your Human Resources Department to determine if your company will match your donation. If they say yes, you can double your donation with just a few clicks of your mouse.
