Date:8/30/2012

MAPLE GROVE, Minn., Aug. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Upsher-Smith Laboratories, Inc. [http://www.upsher-smith.com] today announced that it teamed up with The Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota as one of two title sponsors for the 2012 Stroll for Epilepsy.  The Stroll took place on Thursday, August 9, 2012 in five cities across the state of Minnesota and eastern North Dakota to benefit the 60,000 people in the community living with epilepsy.

"Upsher-Smith and The Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota share a common goal, a commitment to addressing unmet patient needs in epilepsy," said Jim Hughes, Vice President, Marketing, Upsher-Smith.  "It is inspiring to see the local community come together to raise awareness and provide support for patients and family members impacted by epilepsy.  We are proud to support the continued efforts of The Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota."

This year, more than 2,600 individuals participated in The Stroll for Epilepsy in four locations in Minnesota including Duluth, Rochester, St. Cloud, and the Twin Cities, and in Fargo, North Dakota, raising approximately $256,000 to date.  Proceeds fund programs and services that educate, connect and empower people impacted by epilepsy in these communities. 

"This is one of our largest fundraising events of the year, and people really enjoy the camaraderie of being around others who live with seizures and face similar challenges created by epilepsy," said Vicki Kopplin, Executive Director, The Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota.  "We are thrilled that Upsher-Smith has teamed up with us as a title sponsor for The 2012 Stroll for Epilepsy."

The first Stroll for Epilepsy took place in Rochester, MN in 1999 and raised $4,784.  In 2011, The Stroll raised over $280,000, with dollars raised in each community staying in that community to help fund local programs.  For more information about The Epi
