Former Professional Golfer and Athletes vs Epilepsy Ambassador Jeff Klauk
Jeff’s journey with epilepsy started in June, 2006, at a Web.com Tour professional golf event in Knoxville, TN. He was tied for 15th entering the weekend and had a seizure on that Friday night and was forced to withdraw from the tournament.
While Jeff moved forward and accomplished his dream of earning his PGA Tour card (2008), he continued to struggle with seizure control. Medicine has been unable to control his seizures, and brain scans and surgeries have been unsuccessful in locating the origin of his seizures. Jeff continues to work with his doctors who are determined to find the right therapy.
Jeff recently transitioned from a 16-year professional playing career to a role with Perfect Golf Event as the Manager of Tournaments and events for their new digital platform designed for charitable and sponsored golf tournament organizers, enabling them to raise more money for their causes. Jeff also serves as a National Ambassador for Athletes vs Epilepsy with the hope of raising funds and awareness to support the mission of the Epilepsy Foundation.
Athletes vs Epilepsy
Athletes vs. Epilepsy is a nationwide program for athletes of all ages and levels, coaches, volunteers and fans. The goal is to raise awareness, build participation, and help fund the Epilepsy Foundation’s mission to stop seizures and SUDEP, find a cure, and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy through efforts including education, advocacy, and research to accelerate ideas into therapies. The initiative helps to bring epilepsy awareness to all sports through participation by athletes of all ages and skill levels as well as their supportive friends, family, and fans.
The Epilepsy Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that people with epilepsy can experience all that life has to offer. Athletes vs. Epilepsy affirms this positive message and embodies it through action and the belief that anyone, regardless of athletic talent, can help to fundraise and raise awareness.
