“Educating everyone about epilepsy is the challenge, not the seizures.”

For the past 5 years Lenny has spearheaded the movement to get all 35 branches of Ridgewood Savings Bank involved in Purple Day. All of his coworkers wear purple and epilepsy awareness materials are on display at every bank. The company has an internal reporter who makes sure that group pictures appear in the next edition of their newsletter. This yearly fundraiser is hugely successful, with funds going to AKF in support of their many programs.
