National Walk For Epilepsy
Hosted by The Epilepsy Foundation, The National Walk for Epilepsy® is a family oriented, noncompetitive walk in our nation’s capital Washington D.C. to raise awareness and funds to continue the fight to stop seizures, find a cure and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy. You can make a difference!
Purple Day – The Global Day Of Epilepsy Awareness
Purple Day is an international grassroots effort dedicated to increasing awareness about epilepsy worldwide. On March 26th annually, people in countries around the world are invited to wear purple and host events in support of epilepsy awareness. Cassidy Megan created the idea of Purple Day in 2008, motivated by her own struggles with epilepsy. Cassidy’s goal is to get people talking about epilepsy in an effort to dispel myths and inform those with seizures that they are not alone. The Epilepsy Association of Nova Scotia came on board in 2008 to help develop Cassidy’s idea which is now known as the Purple Day for epilepsy campaign.
