MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota football coach Jerry Kill is starting a fund to help children with epilepsy.

Kill and his wife, Rebecca, donated $100,000 to start the “Chasing Dreams” fund through the Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota. The Kills have an initial goal of raising $500,000.

The Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1jzLpBv) reports the money will help fund seizure-smart school initiatives, along with Camp Oz, a camp for epilepsy patients in Hudson, Wisconsin.

Jerry Kill says his goal to educate every school in Minnesota on how to handle seizures in school.

Kill was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2005 and has missed parts of four games in three seasons at Minnesota because of seizures. Last October, Kill took a two-week leave after a seizure kept him from joining the Gophers for a game at Michigan.
