March 26 Purple Day for Epilepsy

March 26th is Purple Day for epilepsy where people worldwide “put on their purple” to show their support for epilepsy. Epilepsy Durham is inviting your business to join in celebrating March as Epilepsy Awareness Month.

There are 1 in 100 people living with epilepsy in Durham Region. Epilepsy is more common than cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, and cystic fibrosis combined. Often people living with epilepsy do so in silence and isolation. They invite you to be part of a movement to raise awareness and promote inclusiveness by hosting your own corporate campaign in the month of March to embrace people in our community affected by epilepsy.

Can you decorate your store window in the colour purple during the month of March? Perhaps host a display centre, challenge another business with a Purple Day fundraiser, or have a dress down day at work and wear purple. Purple cupcakes are also delicious this time of year. The possibilities are endless.

Is your organization interested in raising awareness for epilepsy? If you can help support Purple Day for Epilepsy 2015, complete the form and return to  Epilepsy Durham client services or fax to (905)-430-3080.
