International Purple Day – March 26th

International Purple Day

The District of Mackenzie has proclaimed March 26th as International Purple Day for Epilepsy Awareness.

What is Epilepsy?

Epilepsy is a common medical condition. It is estimated that about 1 in 10 people without epilepsy will have a seizure in their lifetime and about 1 in 100 people will develop epilepsy in their lifetime. Epilepsy can affect anyone, although it tends to be more common in children and the elderly. Epilepsy is still misunderstood. This makes things more difficult for the many people who live with it, and their family and friends.

The Rec Centre front room will be lit up in purple on Sunday March 26th! Show your support by wearing purple!
