Purple Day | Do your own fundraising | Get Involved

Purple Day, Saturday 26th March 2022

Purple Day is the International Day of Epilepsy Awareness on Saturday 26th March 2022.

Together we can make it the biggest yet!

Purple Day is THE day to get people talking about epilepsy, bust the myths about seizures, and raise funds so children and young people can feel safe, supported and included. It’s a day for everyone, for you or someone you know who is living with epilepsy, for family and friends, work colleagues and school mates; anyone who wants to stand up for children and help them be heard.

You’re invited to #GoPurple by taking part in an exciting activity of your choice and raise life-changing funds for children and young people with epilepsy.

Wear Purple to highlight why Purple Day is important to you.

Move Purple with a run, walk, wheel, skydive, cycle, swim, get muddy, or do you have your own idea for a challenge?

Play Purple by fundraising through your favourite video game. Live-stream a playthrough or play privately with friends and raise money from your PC or console.

Simply choose your activity, make a fundraising page and share with family and friends to get sponsored. If you need any help with ideas or have any questions then please get in touch via 01342 831245 or fundraising@youngepilepsy.org.uk.

Wear purple

There's no easier way to #GoPurple than to dress the part! Leggings in lilac, a heliotrope hat, maybe mittens in mauve, or even a wine-coloured wig... you can show your support in any shade.

Wear Purple this Purple Day and raise money to help children with epilepsy get the support and care they need to live happy, fulfilled lives.

Did you know... purple was chosen to be the colour of epilepsy awareness because lavender is the official flower of epilepsy

Why your support is vital

For children, epilepsy is frightening, isolating and often misunderstood. Purple Day is our chance to show we are standing up for children and young people with epilepsy. We’re here for them.

Together we can create a society where children and young people with epilepsy have a voice and can live happy, fulfilled lives. Through research that improves diagnosis and treatments, campaigning for children’s rights, supporting them in school, and providing innovative tools, information, and practical help for living day-to-day life.

Please join in Purple Day this year, because epilepsy is limiting the chances of thousands of children today and will continue to do so for the rest of their lives.

Young Epilepsy has created The Hub @ The Channel, an online community for young people to get answers to the questions they need to ask.

Projects like this one are supported by money raised on Purple Day. By getting involved, you can make a huge practical difference to a young person's everyday life.

For answers to your epilepsy questions, visit hub.thechannel.org.uk.
