Epilepsy Awareness Month

March is Epilepsy Awareness Month in Canada. It’s a great time for anyone with an interest in epilepsy to raise awareness, challenge myths, and help dismantle the stigma of epilepsy.

Purple Day

Purple Day for Epilepsy was founded in 2008 by nine year-old Cassidy Megan of Nova Scotia. Each year, on March 26, people from around the world wear purple in support of epilepsy.

Fire Truck Pull

Epilepsy South Eastern Ontario invites you to the 11th Annual Pull Together for Epilepsy – Fire Truck Pull on Sunday July 21st. This fundraiser has taken place for over 10 years at Confederation Park in front of City Hall in Kingston.


Through a partnership with OLG Today and Community Spirit Gaming Centre we are able to promote epilepsy awareness in our community, as well as receive a portion of the monthly bingo proceeds. To receive this portion, Epilepsy South Eastern Ontario must have two trained volunteers attend each scheduled 2-hour session. We are looking for dedicated volunteers to attend these sessions and help raise awareness for epilepsy!
