Epilepsy and Sport – Georg Thoma
Preparations have begun in earnest for the 1st Roundtable on Epilepsy and Sport. Ms. Angelika Werthmann, Austrian MEP has kindly agreed to host this important event on Tuesday 29th November at 12.30 in the European Parliament.
Today, Georg Thoma became the first sportsperson to agree to address the European Advocates Group for Epilepsy. Georg Thoma is a championship runner, with epilepsy, who has run a marathon across the Great Wall of China. He has twice run over the Alps and in 2007 ran 600km for people with epilepsy.
We are naturally delighted that Georg Thoma has agreed to address the European Parliament.
