In 2016 for Purple Day we ran Light Up Australia to bring epilepsy out of the shadows and shine a light on it!Landmarks across Australia will be lit up purple to help raise awareness the condition. These landmarks joined with many others around the world who went purple in support of the cause.
Lighting up landmarks across the country got people asking questions, starting conversations, and therefore talking about epilepsy. The more landmarks turning purple around Australia, the more people we can reach and educate.
