As the global sponsor, The Anita Kaufmann Foundation has teamed up with The Epilepsy Association of Central Florida again, to create and develop a comprehensive event for the epilepsy community. This event is specifically designed for patients and caregivers living with epilepsy as a shared opportunity to meet, engage, and be inspired to promote epilepsy awareness in their own community. In addition, patients and caregivers can explore the expo and learn more about services and supports available to them.
Purple Day® is the largest grassroots effort dedicated to increasing awareness about epilepsy worldwide. It was created in 2008, by then nine-year-old Cassidy Megan. Motivated by her own struggles with epilepsy, she wanted to get people talking about the condition to dispel myths and inform those with seizures that they are not alone. While it is tradionationally celebrated on March 26th , this year we will hold our annual event on March 23, 2024 to allow families from all over to partcipate!
