Train with champions! Join other young people affected by epilepsy and have sporting fun with British Athletics team members, Beth Dobbin and Zac Shaw who have epilepsy.
They will offer coaching tips and support, in the world class facilities of Loughborough University. Activities include:

- Information and resources for parents and children
- Relaxed area to meet other parents and epilepsy specialist nurses.
Parents/carers need to be at the event all day. The event is suitable for children over 7 years old.
The event will be opened and supported by Beth Dobbin and Zac Shaw. Beth is an ambassador for Epilepsy Action and is the current British 200m champion. Zac is a gold medal winning para-athlete. Participants will be coached by Beth and Zac.
"I believe confidence is the best way to overcome disabilities. Sport is a huge way to increase your confidence as you can focus on your ability, rather than your disability."
Zach Shaw, gold medal winning British para-athlete
"Through sport you can set yourself challenges to be the best you can be. You can achieve more than you could ever imagine if you put your mind to it."
Beth Dobbin, Ambassador for Epilepsy Action and British champion sprinter
