My friend Andrea has had epilepsy all her life, and as the seizures have recently gotten more recurring, she is now preparing to undergo brain surgery (which appears to be the last resort).

Go Geoff!
As many of you are aware, for the past few years I have participated in a variety of different endurance events to raise funds and awareness for Epilepsy; a condition which has affected our daughter Sloane since she was a newborn. Over the years, we have raised over $23,000 for Epilepsy research and awareness. This is truly amazing! We cannot thank you enough for your support!!

To keep things interesting, with each passing year I have attempted to up the ante. The goal is to make each event I enter more of an adventure; and to demonstrate that with determination and family support anybody can achieve huge goals.

The adventure this year will be two-fold. On June 10th I will participate in the 4.4 mile Great Chesapeake Bay Swim, followed in November by the NYC Marathon (yes, I finally got in!) The Great Chesapeake Bay Swim is one of America's premier open water swim challenges. The annual event, which only allows 600 swimmers, starts just northeast of Annapolis, MD, and finishes at a small sandy beach on Kent Island.

Once again I will be taking these challenges to raise funds and awareness for FACES. Finding A Cure for Epilepsy and Seizures is a non-profit organization who mission is to improve the quality of life for all people affected by Epilepsy through research, education, awareness, and community-building events.

If you or your organization would like to sponsor me, please make a secure donation below, or contact FACES at (646) 558-0900.

Thank you for your support, Geoff (aka Chuckie), Aimee, Logan and Sloane Schenkel

PS. Last year I took on the challenge of completing the 4.4 mile Chesapeake Bay Bridge swim and the New York City Marathon in the same year. In June 2012 I completed the 4.4 mile swim in 2 hours 38 minutes, but due to extenuating circumstances (SuperStorm Sandy) I was unable to successfully accomplish my goal and meet the commitment. As a result I have spent the last 11 months and 359 days feeling like I didn't hold up my end of the bargain. Sunday I will have my chance to complete the challenge, yes I will be running with about 47, 999 of my best friends for 26.2 miles through all 5 Boros of New York City.

So far I've raised
$ 2,833.00
