Did you know 1 in 10 people will have a seizure in their lifetime and they can happen for no apparent reason to anyone at any time? This Saturday, March 19th is the 2nd Annual Purple Day Walk for Epilepsy, taking place at the Mall of America.
After the walk, let the brain games begin in the MOA™ Rotunda! Local and national organizations will host creative and educational brain games. In celebration of our little heroes and their families, we’ll dance and celebrate to live music, enjoy local artists and magicians, and pose on a purple carpet.
- To register, visit purpledaywalk.org. Registered walkers will each receive a jam-packed gift bag and t-shirts for adults with hero capes for the children.
- One-in-four children and their families who live with a neurologic disorder.
