2016 Steps Toward A Cure – Family Events, Walks & 5K Series


The DSF Steps Toward A Cure series is our annual fundraiser that consists of family-friendly events, 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.


There are many ways to get involved – be a participant, coordinate an event, volunteer, or become a sponsor.
