Gophers gameday rally for Jerry Kill, 60,000 Minnesotans with epilepsy

MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

A rally is being held Saturday morning near TCF Bank Stadium to show support for Gophers head football coach Jerry Kill.

The Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota (EFMN) is organizing the rally to not only show Coach Kill support, but also to the 60,000 Minnesotans with epilepsy.

The rally was sparked by newspaper and radio talk shows that were saying it's time for Kill to step down if he keeps having seizures on the field.

The Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota responded vigorously to advocate for people with seizures and point out the need for seizure education to stop stigma and discrimination.

"We cannot control whether our seizures are in public or private environments. Educating the public on how to respond and support someone who has a seizure actually provides confidence to those of us with seizures to achieve," said EFMN Board President Brett Boyum.
