Help Prevent21 Challenge

21st January – 21st March 2021

SUDEP Action are asking you to join us and #HelpPrevent21 by taking part in a positive activity every day for 21 days between 21st January - 21st March. 
Whether it is a physical challenge of 21 sit-ups or push-ups a day over 21 days, by helping to brighten someone’s day though random acts of kindness each day over 21 days or, if you want to get creative you could bake, knit, crochet, draw, paint or write over 21 days 
however you choose to take part in the SUDEP Action Help Prevent 21 Challenge, together we will be:

  • raising vital awareness of the more than 21 epilepsy deaths each week in the UK
  • highlighting what can be done to improve safety and reduce epilepsy risk now
  • supporting others by raising funds toward the SUDEP Action Prevent 21 campaign.
