How YOU can get involved!
Purple Day Climb
Be a Purple Hero for Epilepsy and take on the challenge to climb the Story Bridge on Purple Day.
Join our exclusive group of supporters scaling to new heights to raise funds and awareness of epilepsy.
Invite your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor your climb and come along to our Purple Day Party to cheer you on/up!
Enjoy the best view from the top of the purple bridge whilst celebrating your fundraising achievements.
All we ask is that you raise a minimum of $500 but…. the more you raise the more you will receive in return including a beautiful photographic memento.
Never fundraised before or unsure where to start? Give us a call and we can help you!
Registrations are now closed for this year. To support our climbers visit www.epilepsyqueensland.com.au/purple-climb.
Purple Day Party
Come dressed in purple and join us at the Story Bridge Hotel from 5.00pm for free face painting and prizes for the best dressed. Our mascot, Little Poss is looking forward to meeting everyone! Enjoy a meal and/or drink with fellow Epilepsy Queensland members and supporters as we cheer on our fundraisers climbing to the top of the Story Bridge.
RSVPs are essential to attend this event.
From there you can walk across the Story Bridge as it turns purple. Continue your walk to see the city also light up to celebrate Purple Day. This is not an organised walk but one that you can do at your leisure with the assistance of our handy maps.
Or see the illuminations from a different angle and take the FREE City Hopper along the Brisbane River.
Tag us in your best selfie with a purple illumination on Facebook for your chance to win great prizes.
On Purple Day 2018 we will have more purple illuminations and fountains across the State than ever before. Confirmed sites include Story Bridge, Brisbane City Hall, Treasury Casino, Wheel of Brisbane, Brisbane sign at Southbank, QPAC, Suncorp Stadium, Queensland Parliament House, Victoria Bridge, Sir Leo Hielscher Bridges and Kurilpa Bridge (Brisbane), City Hall and Victoria Street Bridge (Toowoomba), Civic Centre (Ipswich), Bourbong Street fountain (Bundaberg) and the tree @ the corner of Underwood Road and Centre Place (Logan) . We will continue to keep you updated via our Facebook page www.facebook.com/EpilepsyQueensland with more sites.
