Charity Partner

Chelsea Hutchison Foundation

The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation CHF is excited to partner with Colfax Marathon and be a part of this amazing event.  CHF grants comfort and hope to those affected by epilepsy through providing tangible monitoring resources, vital information, and a safe haven for conversation and community.  Our main goal is to raise awareness of SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy) and to make a positive difference in the lives of individuals and families living with epilepsy.

We raise funds to provide education about SUDEP and to provide seizure response dog grants, (what we believe to be) lifesaving movement monitors that help to protect against SUDEP and grant wish trips to Epilepsy Awareness Education Expo and Day at Disneyland each year.

We stay up-to-date on current trends in medical technology in order to be able to provide the most effective devices as they become available.  We respect the value and quality of life of every person living with epilepsy. We are dedicated to providing opportunities that allow individuals and families greater independence, increased confidence, ability to enjoy social environments, and community understanding.
