Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Hundreds of feet pounded the cement in the FargoDome tonight in support of those living with epilepsy. About 400 people turned out for the Epilepsy Foundation's 15th Annual Stroll for Epilepsy.

There are about 60,000 people in Minnesota and North Dakota living with the condition; people like Ashley Nygaard, who was backed by a team of friends and family.

Ashley Nygaard - The Movers & The Shakers: "We're here to support everybody that has epilepsy. I was diagnosed in 2009 myself with a mild case. I've done fundraisers my whole life, and I just want to give back."

Money raised tonight will help fund programs and services for people and their families impacted by epilepsy.
