The event is a unique memorial to Sharon Rosenfeld, a nurse and teacher who cared deeply about epilepsy and epilepsy patients. Sharon was killed during a cross country bicycle ride in 1993. Sharon’s Ride for Epilepsy was started in 1996 by Dr. William Rosenfeld and Dr. Susan Lippman in St. Louis, Missouri with the goal of continuing the support of those dealing with epilepsy. We are beyond thrilled to be hosting this fantastically worthwhile event in Boise!
