Throughout March, Epilepsy Australia is urging people around the country to end the stigma and discrimination of epilepsy and ‘GO PURPLE’, the international colour for epilepsy.
Purple Day aims to encourage people to talk about epilepsy and to remind those who live with seizures, that they are not alone.
Founded in 2008 by a young Canadian girl called Cassidy Megan, it has since become a global campaign dedicated to increasing epilepsy awareness worldwide.
In SA, we partnered with Epilepsy Australia to have this barbecue.
We had approximately 25 people attend including MP Chris Picton. Rotary Club of Seaford assisted with cooking up the barbecue and Debbie’s Pet Parlour sponsored part of the event.
