I am running to Protect Kids with Epilepsy

Please support my Marathon for Danny Did Foundation


$5,212 towards $1,800

Hi everyone,

I am running the Chicago marathon on October 9th, 2022 in honor of my older brother, Jack, who passed away at the age of 2 of SUDEP (sudden unexpected death of epilepsy). I am hoping to raise money and awareness for this cause that is near and dear to my family and my heart. I have posted information below discussing the organizations goal and what the money goes towards. I would greatly appreciate any donation given to help me achieve my goal.

I miss you and I love you always, Jack ❤️ #runningforjack

Thank you for considering a donation to support my 26.2 miles dedicated to those facing epilepsy.


About Danny Did Foundation

Founded by Chicago parents Mike and Mariann Stanton in 2010 after the sudden death of their four-year-old son Danny, the Danny Did Foundation’s primary mission is to prevent deaths caused by seizures. The Foundation advances public awareness of epilepsy and Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP), strives to improve communication about SUDEP between medical professionals and families affected by seizures, and advocates for the mainstream acceptance and use of seizure detection and prediction devices that may assist in preventing seizure-related deaths.

Epilepsy affects 3.4 million people in the United States and 65 million people worldwide. One in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy during their lifetime. But what few people understand, including many people with epilepsy, is that seizures can be fatal. More people die as a result of seizures than from fires and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) combined. In addition to deaths caused by drowning, other accidents, and status epilepticus (prolonged seizures),thousands of deaths occur annually from SUDEP, a fact that is little known and too rarely addressed by medical professionals and in public discussions of epilepsy.

The Danny Did Foundation takes it's name from the last line of Danny Stanton’s obituary, written by his dad: “Please go and enjoy your life. Danny did.” We celebrate Danny’s spirit in every child and family we reach.
