Purple Day is over for another year and what an amazing day it was! We loved seeing supporters, schools, groups, communities and landmarks going purple and celebrating all throughout March!
Looking to get involved at another time of the year?
What is Purple Day?
Purple Day (26th March) is a global initiative dedicated to raising epilepsy awareness. Purple Day was founded in 2008, by nine-year-old Cassidy Megan of Nova Scotia, Canada. Motivated by her own struggles with epilepsy, Cassidy started Purple Day in an effort to get people talking about the condition and to let those impacted by seizures know that they are not alone. She named the day Purple Day after the internationally recognised colour for epilepsy, lavender.
