Sports Saturdays: Tri to Help Midnight Indoor Triathlon
March 14th, 2013 by Anthony Santiago
The Stroup Kid For Kids Epilepsy Foundation is dedicated to helping individuals affected by epilepsy and other seizure disorders. They raise money for education, advocacy in government, and for research in treatments for those that suffer from this condition.
The organization was formed in 2004 after Adelyn Stroup, the daughter of Trent and Tina Stroup, had her first seizure and was diagnosed with epilepsy. Her parents didn’t know where to go after their daughter had just been diagnosed with a very rare form of epilepsy. They pooled some assets together and attempted to find research and others who may have been in a similar situation. Soon, a large organization formed and began to advocate for others like Adelyn.
Now, they host various outings such as these triathlons. This particular event is helping fund research at Johns Hopkins and open to all who have or have not been impacted epilepsy.
