Sharon's Ride.Run.Walk for Epilepsy is dedicated to Sharon Rosenfeld, a nurse and teacher, who cared deeply about epilepsy and advocated helmet safety. She was killed on a cross country bicycle ride in 1993. Dr. William Rosenfeld and Dr. Susan Lippmann, neurologists who specialize in epilepsy, created the event to honor the memory of Dr. Rosenfeld's sister.
