The Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota will hold a rally before Saturday’s Gophers football game to show support for coach Jerry Kill and the 60,000 other Minnesotans with epilepsy.
People affected by seizures will gather at 8:30 a.m. Saturday on Oak Street — between TCF Bank Stadium and Mariucci Arena — for the regular home-game Victory Walk by Kill and his players, according to the foundation. Those attending the rally will receive “JERRYSOTA” T-shirts to wear during the game against San Jose State.
“We’re turning misinformation into opportunities to provide more seizure education,” Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota executive director Vicki Kopplin said in a statement. “It’s time for all of us affected by epilepsy to stand up and not be defined by seizures.”
