Celebrate Purple Day with our new, inclusive challenge!

 26 miles header


Whether you walk, run, jog, or wheel, start your miles on the 1st of March and you'll be done in time for Purple Day, the international day of epilepsy awareness.

We want to make this Purple Day bigger than ever, and 26 miles in 26 days is a great way for anyone in the family to get involved.

But don't feel limited to a mile a day - you can conquer them all in a week, or even less if you want to. Simply track your distance with your own online JustGiving page and see if you can reach 26 miles by 26 March!

Team up with your friends and family and encourage each other to reach 26 miles this March. Encourage people to sponsor you for each mile or each day, and remember to shout about what you’re doing on social media!
