What is Make March Purple for epilepsy?

Each March the world turns purple in support of the 65 million people living with epilepsy. In 2024, Epilepsy Queensland invites you to join the movement happening in over 130 countries around the world and make March purple for epilepsy!

Make March Purple is an Australia wide campaign supported by epilepsy organisations across the country.

World Purple Day, held on March 26 is an international day of awareness for people impacted by epilepsy. 

How can you Make March Purple for epilepsy?

During the month of March, Epilepsy Queensland invites you to get involved. On this page, you will find the many ways you can raise funds and awareness in support of the 280 Australians diagnosed with epilepsy every week.

You can choose to host your own event at home, school or work, or set yourself a personal challenge. We have a bunch of resources to help you along the way and an expert fundraising team to answer your questions.

During March you will see iconic landmarks around the world light up PURPLE. Check out who and what will be going PURPLE by clicking the illuminations button below. If you have a tree, a building, or even a windmill you can light up Purple, let us know.

Remember to share your purple and share your story with us and, with the world this March. Find out how below.
