What's On

We have some great events coming up in 2020....

PURPLE DAY (26 March)

Purple Day is a worldwide campaign dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding of epilepsy. On 26 March each year, people are encouraged to go purple to show their support of those living with epilepsy.
 
How can I become involved?
There are many ways you can celebrate Purple Day.  You could:
1.  Attend our Brisbane Purple Day celebration at Flowstate, Southbank for a twilight walk and FREE City Hopper rides to see all the purple illuminations. 
3. Create your own fundraising webpage and share your story on Everyday Hero
4. Sell items from our new retail range at your work, school or local markets.
5.  Defy yourself and do something different Choose from one of our experience events and fundraise to either soar like a bird at iFLY, or learn to throw an axe and become a Purple Punk for epilepsy at Lumber Punks
6. Share your story or purple selfie on social media with the tag #purpleday or share our Purple Day posts on Facebook,  Instagram or Twitter.
