Purple Day occurs annually on March 26 and is a day of epilepsy awareness and empowerment. It is a home-grown campaign which began with a young girl in Nova Scotia. Today, it has gtown into a movement across the country and the world. We coordinate Purple Day activities in the province of British Columbia. This includes providing advertising, materials, and support to individuals who are hosting Purple Day activities in their communities. Purple Day is a fantastic way to reach out and create awareness about epilepsy in your town. Each year awareness throughout BC grows. We have celebrated Purple Day with everything from a bake sale to a Juno award-winning star performance. Let us help you with your activity.
Each summer we have the privilege of sending children to camp. To this end, we have partnered with Zajac Ranch for Children. Zajac Ranch is an inclusive camp in the mountains behind Mission, BC for children with medical needs. Going to summer camp is an opportunity of a life time. Now parents can feel comfortable knowing that staff at Zajac Ranch are able to support their child’s needs. If you have a child who is living with epilepsy and you would like them to be part of this fantastic summer experience, call our client service coordinator for details on how we can support your child.
