DSF Steps Toward A Cure – Family Walks & 5K Series

The DSF Steps Toward A Cure series is our annual fundraiser that consists of family-friendly walks and/or 5K races hosted by families throughout the US. This year, we will continue with our Dravet Superhero theme! All children with Dravet syndrome or another form of epilepsy will receive a Superhero set that includes a cape, mask and armbands with their registration. Superhero sets are also available for $20 for pre-purchase for other participants.


There are many ways to get involved – be a participant, coordinate a walk, volunteer, or become a sponsor. Special thanks to our 2015 Gold Walk Sponsor, INSYS Therapeutics, Inc.
