PHOENIX (FOX 10) - More than 700 people showed up at Rio Vista Park wearing purple to participate in this year's Arizona's Walk to End Epilepsy.
One family who has a son with epilepsy says that events like these help them feel not so alone.
"It's pretty amazing that everybody is fighting for one thing: epilepsy," Angelica Garcia said. "It's not something that's really known. When my son was diagnosed with it, I didn't know about it, so knowing that we have support from everywhere in the world, it's pretty awesome."
The walk aims to raise epilepsy awareness as well as raise funds for research.
