Photo of the Day: Chicago Boy Brings Epilepsy Awareness Skate to Lake Forest

Nick Curley, 7, is skating 100 miles to benefit the Danny Did Foundation.

A seven-year-old skater in a quest to raise awareness on epilepsy will pay a special visit to Saturday afternoon.

Nick Curley, a Chicago resident, has embarked on "100 Miles For Danny", in which he skates ice rinks around the area, raising money for the Danny Did Foundation. Curley skates for five-mile increments in each visit and has reached the 55-mile mark. 

"Previously, NHL Hall of Fame Player and Former Blackhawks Coach Denis Savard as well as NHL defenseman Bret Lebda joined Nick for a recent skate, while Duncan Keith of the Chicago Blackhawks expressed his support on Twitter," according to a press statement from the Danny Did Foundation.

Donations for Curley's campaign can be made online.

An exciting way to spread awareness for Epilepsy and SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy). We can learn a lot from 7 year old Nick! and from his inspiration- 4 year old Danny Stanton. www.dannydid.org. Thanks for the story Andrea.

What a wonderful event we had today at LFA. Special thanks to Coach Madeley and the fine young men of the LFA hockey team who skated the full five miles right along side Nick. The other students who cheered were wonderful to see also! Lake Forest Academy can be very proud of the way the students represented your institution today! Many thanks for a wonderful time! Laura, Brian and Nick Curley
