Purple Walk For Epilepsy WA
The Purple Walk 4 Epilepsy WA is a family fun day event, where the community unites to shine a light on epilepsy and helps raise vital funds for your local epilepsy support organisation, Epilepsy WA. This is our biggest fundraising event of the year. The event consists of live music, face painting, food stalls, a cuddly animal farm and so much more. Hundreds of people in our wonderful WA community dress up in purple and walk laps around Edinburgh Oval South, in Bentley, throughout the course of the event.
The Purple Walk 4 Epilepsy WA usually takes place on the last Sunday of March (Purple Month).
Please stay tuned for the announcement of the 2021 Purple Walk 4 Epilepsy WA, or please email [email protected] if you would like to find out how you can help us raise vital funds and be added to our newsletter database.
If you are a local business and would like to support the 2021 Purple Walk 4 Epilepsy WA in the form of sponsorship or donation of raffle prizes, please email [email protected]. We would love to hear from you.
Purple Lights for Purple Day – March 26th
Purple Day (March 26) is a day dedicated to raising epilepsy awareness globally. Each year, Perth and some regional landmarks light up purple on Purple Day to show support to our WA community and help us spread awareness.
In the past, we have had the support of the The Bell Tower, Council House, Trafalgar Bridge, Mandurah Foreshore Bridge, Optus Stadium, Matagarup Bridge, Mount Street Bridge, Sky Ribbon Bridge, Yagan Square, Elizabeth Quay, Bunbury’s Koombana Bridge and City of Albany Town Square. We are hoping these landmarks and many more, will light purple in 2021.
We encourage our community, to head out and view the lights wherever possible. Please note that this is not an event that we will be physically manning, but, we would love to see any photos you take on the evening. Please send them to [email protected].
