The Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota is looking to start a local support group in Grand Forks and is planning an event this Saturday.
People who have epilepsy and their guests are invited to a “Connect Bowling Event” from 2 to 4 p.m., Saturday at Red Ray Lanes, 2101 S. Washington St. in Grand Forks, officials said. The afternoon of bowling and pizza is free for people with epilepsy and $5 for others. All ages are welcome.
The event is a step toward revitalizing an epilepsy support group for the area, said Amy Haugen, a regional outreach coordinator for the Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota. She is based in Fargo. “We have a number of people from that area who receive information from us, but unfortunately most of our events are in Fargo,” she said.
Haugen asks for RSVPs with the number attending by Friday. Call her at (701) 429-1165 or email email@example.com.
