☆ Purple Day Nagoya 2018 all set! Check out the activities! ☆

The Epilepsy Awareness Motto for – 2018 Purple Day Nagoya – is all decided!! – “With epilepsy we are never alone!”. The 2018 event will be held on March 25th (not March 26th) because March 25th falls on a Sunday, a day of gathering and celebration!

This year’s theme is “Challenge”! Under the beautiful “Nagoya TV tower” (identical looking to Paris’ Eiffel Tower), there will be professional wrestling, a stage for performances, and some great epilepsy lectures/programs by specialists.

To make the day successful, we have started a recruiting drive to add flavor to the “Purple Day Challenge”. We are currently looking for creators/exhibitors of purple-day goods and brochure designers for the grand day! More info follows below.

On March 25, we aim to be surrounded by wearers of purple, and other lavender items, encouraging those with epilepsy, their families, as well as *all* participants to fully enjoy themselves. Join us and become a Purple Day supporter, encouraging those with epilepsy and their families through supportive events! A blast of supportive fun!
