Purple Day

Purple Day LogoPurple Day is an International Epilepsy Awareness initiative created by Nova Scotia’s Cassidy Megan when she was 9 years old.

In June 2012, the Canadian government passed The Purple Day Act, declaring March 26, “Purple Day”, the official day for Epilepsy Awareness across Canada. The excitement spread and the entire month of March is now regarded as Epilepsy Awareness Month.

We invite you to get in on the fun while helping raise awareness by simply wearing purple or participating in #ThumbsUpforEpilepsy, holding a Purple Day event at your school or workplace such as a bake/jewelry sale, open mic/concert, run/walk/dance/skateathon, photobooth, paint/flower/terrarium night, and more – the possibilities are endless. Email us at info@epilepsyottawa.ca for details on how to get started setting up your own fundraiser.
