Volunteers of the Month


Kevin and Christine Crowell

Kevin and Christine Crowell

We are pleased to announce that our September Volunteers of the Month are longtime volunteers Kevin and Christine Crowell!

For the last six years, Kevin and Christine have been heavily involved in the planning and execution of our Boston and Springfield Walks for Epilepsy. With over 1100 registrants at this year’s Boston Walk for Epilepsy, and 300 at our Springfield Walk for Epilepsy, this was no small effort!

In the weeks and months leading up to the event, they spent many hours volunteering from home, mapping out the registration and check-in process. In addition to the work they did leading up to the event, they also volunteered onsite at our Boston and Springfield walks, managing the registration table and ensuring that everything went smoothly for our attendees.

Our Director of Community Education, Susan Welby, remarked “No job was too small for Kevin and Christine. Their humor, commitment to those living with epilepsy and EFNE is very much appreciated.”

Their backgrounds in project management made them ideal volunteers for this project. They are organized, thorough, and detail-oriented.

Susan Linn, President and CEO, says “Kevin and Christine’s contributions to our foundation are enormously appreciated. We are so grateful for all the time and energy they share with our foundation.”

Thank you, Kevin and Christine, for all you have done for EFNE!
