Purple Day for Epilepsy – March 26th


Purple Day is an International Epilepsy Awareness initiative created by nine-year old Cassidy Megan of Nova Scotia, Canada


In June 2012, the Canadian government passed The Purple Day Act, declaring March 26, “Purple Day”, the official day for Epilepsy Awareness across Canada. Let’s stand in solidarity with those affected by epilepsy by promoting education and awareness in our community, Durham Region.
