This will mark Minnesota’s third annual Go-Pher Epilepsy Awareness Game.
Jerry Kill is one of the 2.2 million people in the United States who has epilepsy, which the foundation describes as anyone who has had two unprovoked seizures. Kill’s condition has been well-documented, and he has vowed to stand up for people with epilepsy.
