Purple Day

26 March 2017

Thank you to everyone who supported SUDEP Action for Purple Day this year, you helped us raise Purple funds and some much needed awareness. Purple Day is a grassroots effort dedicated to increasing awareness of epilepsy worldwide.  Every year we invite supporters to join the campaign in aid of SUDEP Action. This year we shared some exciting new fundraising ideas and tips on how people could get involved. By supporting SUDEP Action for Purple Day, you can help us to continue to provide free bereavement support for anyone affected by an epilepsy death, support research towards prevention of these deaths, and to spread awareness of epilepsy risks.

We invited people to support the day using the ‘Purple’ ideas below:

  • Walk 5k for Purple Day.

  • Take part in a sponsored Public Purple Mannequin Challenge.
