To Our Prospective Sponsors

CURE is a nonprofit organization dedicated to finding a cure for epilepsy by raising funds for research and by increasing awareness of the prevalence and devastation of this disease.  CURE was founded by parents of children with epilepsy who were unwilling to sit back and accept the lack of resources, knowledge, and/or treatment options for the disease.  My name is Mikki Lewis, and I, too, am a parent searching for a cure. Nine years ago, my family’s life was changed forever when at age six, my daughter Hadley was diagnosed with epilepsy. While the diagnosis and its unknowns have been challenging for our family, we have elected to use our journey to create awareness and funding in the efforts to impact the lives of Hadley and others.

As the founder and chairman of The Cupid Chase, I am writing to ask your support for this special charity event that will be held in beautiful downtown Senoia, GA to benefit CURE, Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy.  This will be our fifth year of hosting the event. On February 4, 2017, many people joined us for a fun-filled family day, and we were able to raise $20,000 in our efforts of finding a cure for epilepsy. It was an event that inspired, provided hope, encouraged, and motivated those that suffer or know those that suffer from the disease and its mysteries, as well as honors the memory of those whose lives have been lost.

The general public remains largely unaware of how many lives are impacted by epilepsy.  One in twenty-six will develop epilepsy in their lifetime. Epilepsy also affects sixty-five million people worldwide of all ages.  Over forty percent of these patients do not have control over their seizures, even with the best available treatments.  Many more have only achieved seizure control at the cost of living with debilitating side effects of medications. For many soldiers suffering traumatic brain injury on the battlefield, epilepsy will be a long-term consequence. Although epilepsy impacts so many, there is so little funding dedicated to the research for a cure and medications that offer hope, along with quality of life. We are out to change this, and we hope that we can do so with your help and sponsorship commitment.

February 4th our community will come together for an event to raise funds to eradicate this disease. As a local business or family, we hope that you will be interested in supporting us in our goal to raise funds to benefit CURE while gaining valuable exposure to the community. The festivities will begin with an all day expo Friday, February 3rd and continue Saturday, February 4th with the 15K, 5K and 1 Mile Encouragement Walk. We have booth spaces available during the expo, as well as, various sponsorship levels.  For more information or to pledge your support to CURE, please contact Mikki Lewis at (770) 833-1506 mikki@thecupidchase.org or Cerra Smith at (770) 595-2823.

Thank you so much for your consideration and support!
