Great Ethiopian Run – November 2017

Joining us at the 2017 Great Ethiopian Run means that you will be creating awareness about epilepsy, where stigma has been a debilitating factor for people with epilepsy.

Trek Ethiopia – November 2017

Care Epilepsy and EPSA Isle of Man (joint initiative) trek to raise awareness about epilepsy and raise funds for projects. The trek will be based in the Simien Mountains National Park, itself a World Heritage Site, and will include the ascent of Ras Dashen, the highest peak in Ethiopia at 4,620m. However, there will also be time to visit the UNESCO World Heritage sites in Lalibela (known as the 8th Wonder of the World) and in Gondar (Africa’s ‘Camelot’). Also, there will be time to visit the historic attractions in Addis Ababa.

We invite you to join us in Ethiopia next year. For more information on the Trek contact Kevin Christian on mrkevciom@yahoo.co.uk and EPSA http://www.epsaiom.org/
