Our supporters really are an incredible bunch and have undertaken marathons, hikes, swimming and cycling events, organised cake and car boot sales, held parties, quizzes and even jumped out of planes, all to raise vital funds for Epilepsy Scotland.
We love hearing your stories! Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us about your fundraising or if you want some advice to get you started.
Here's just a little taster of what some of our recent supporters have been doing...
With the Tour de France still fresh in everyone’s mind we would like say a special thank you to Cathy Padmore and Mark Walsh who are raising money for Epilepsy Scotland by tackling one of the hardest cycling routes in France. The Cyberonics employees will be pedalling up the Col du Télégraphe and the Col du Galibier in France.
This route is frequently used in the Tour De France and, with an average incline of 5.5%, is tough for even the most experienced cyclists.
This is an extreme challenge and we are so grateful to Catherine and Mark for signing up!
You can sponsor the pair on their Just Giving page https://www.justgiving.com/CathyandMark/
Four fabulous ladies from Dumfries and Galloway have pledged to climb ten miles to the top of Ben Nevis. The team is made up of four friends who pledged to raise funds and awareness for Epilepsy Scotland after one their children was diagnosed with epilepsy and received support from the charity.

The 4th Funky Natz Foundation Charity Golf Trophy was held on Sunday 20 July. The day was a tremendous success with 100 amateur golfers taking part at Wishaw Golf Course.
Golfers were challenged to get a hole in one with a chance to win a new car and holidays In Portugal & Forest Of Arden. Prizes were also awarded for best score, closet to the pin and longest drive. Over £3000 was raised on the day, and the foundation thanks all of the businesses and supporters that contributed to make the day such a success.
