Hello all! My name is Renee, I am 24 years old and from Melbourne. I was diagnosed with Epilepsy where I frequently experience Generalized tonic-clonic seizures . When I was 16 I woke up with my 2 friends in distress telling me I had a seizure. That was the first time. But in denial I just brushed it aside wanting to forget but a few months later with them not stopping I was properly diagnosed and that’s when my life had completely changed. I felt a lot of shame, embarrassment, anxiety and depression for years and made me terrified that I was never going to live a normal life with not having the courage to tell anyone. It effects me everyday, sometimes having to deal with injuries and as well watching it effect the people around me too but having to fight this it has made me so much stronger. It has helped me open up, educate, to learn responsibility and being able to tell others about my own story. To be proud and happy. Learning about this walk only a few months ago I believe we can all help make an amazing change.

For my beautiful boy Zeb. The baby of my 4 children, our little soldier. He has the biggest heart and the greatest attitude about his diagnosis this year. The least I can do is walk 100kms to spread awareness and raise funds for the amazing work the epilepsy foundation do! Thank you

Vanessa Bibile

I’m walking for team Noalepsy. Because I’m so proud of my epileptic children. They are so strong and do so much to try and help make sure all epileptics have all the support they need. They are determined to teach everyone that it’s normal to be different in some way. I’m walking to let all epileptics know that they are loved and supported.

Kylie Shepherd

I’m doing this in memory of my late fiancé Anton who died almost two years ago and to those still living with epilepsy now


I walking in honour of my son Tristan who passed from sudep (sudden unexpected death in epileptics). Tristan was only 16. Not only did he pass away from a seizure he took care of me his mum, me, who through his younger years had epliepsy. Tristan was not diagnosed with epilepsy but he had to deal with epilepsy all his life until it took his life.


100kms seems like nothing compared to living with epilepsy. Running for my daughter. Running so she knows she’s not alone, running so she sees that she can do incredible things ❤️

For my hero and amazing husband Adam and all those who suffer from this condition. You’re all amazing. This is for you 💜

Vanessa Simione-Mazzocco

I am walking for epilepsy for all those who live with this disorder that are unseen. Those with epilepsy who live their life as independently as possible. Those that are fortunate enough that they are not suffering as much as other epileptics out there.

I just want to thank everyone that has jumped on board to support these amazing people & organisations that are there for me & those close to me as we navigate this journey called Epilepsy. Would so rather be traveling to Hawaii or Cairns or the like but ..... Thank you everyone ! !

Angie Rogers

I am walking for myself as I have epilepsy. This year 2020, I had brain surgery to remove a lesion I had on my brain that was causing the seizures. I’m in recovery and so far seizure free. The foundation is amazing and I would like to support it by raising money for awareness by walking.

Good Luck & Thanks for all you do for us!!

Amanda Begelhole
