KNOXVILLE, Tenn. --
Students of The I.G. Brown Air National Guard Training and Education Center's Airman Leadership School helped raise more than $20,000 for the Epilepsy Foundation of East Tennessee during the organization's annual Mud Volleyball Tournament at Chilhowee Park, June 26.
The 20 senior airmen of Class 10-4 who participated in the event hailed from Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve units in the states of Alabama, Florida, Hawaii, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Wisconsin, and the U.S. Territory of Guam.
Their contributions will go toward raising public awareness of epilepsy, a neurological condition that affects nearly 3 million people in the United States.
