Purple Month Events

Purple Day for Epilepsy WA

March 26 is Purple Day. Purple Day is dedicated to raising epilepsy awareness globally. Each year we request a number of Perth and some regional landmarks, including The Bell Tower, Council House, Trafalgar Bridge, Mandurah Forest Bridge, Albany’s Town Square and Bunbury’s Koombana Bridge to light purple on the evening of Purple Day (March 26), to show support to our WA community and to help us spread awareness.

If you would like us to request that a landmark in your area illuminates for Purple Day. please call 08 6457 7699.

In Memory

The loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences most of us will ever have to endure.

When making a donation to Epilepsy WA, in memory and celebration of a loved one, you are assisting us in our fight to raise awareness and helping to make a difference to the lives of those living with epilepsy. Your donation is a meaningful tribute, and a way to honour your loved one.

Whether you wish to set up an online tribute so friends and family can join in celebrating the life of a loved one, or just give a one off personal donation, each special gift in memory of your loved one is a gift of hope for the future.

Challenge Events

Epilepsy WA is grateful to our supporters who take part in events such a HBF’s Run for a Reason and Rottnest Channel Swim, and fundraise for us.
Fundraising links will be updated as future dates for ‘challenge events’ are scheduled and announced.
