What is Make March Purple?

Make March Purple is a month-long campaign raising awareness of epilepsy across Australia. Epilepsy organisations from around the country come together in support of the 250,000 Australians living with epilepsy, their partners, families and unpaid carers.

Why March?

Motivated by her own struggle with epilepsy, nine-year-old Canadian girl Cassidy Megan held the first Purple Day event on March 26, 2008. In the years that followed, epilepsy organisations around the world began recognising March 26 as an international day of epilepsy awareness. In Australia, we’ve taken it a step further, bringing epilepsy into the spotlight for a whole month.
