About us

Purple Walk For Epilepsy Toronto


We were truly inspired by the overwhelming support for the Purple Walk this year, especially during these trying times. The strength and resiliency of our members and community never ceases to amaze us. Because of YOU, so many people and their families living with epilepsy will be able to receive the care and support that they need.

 People from across the province, country, and around the world joined us to celebrate the Virtual Purple Walk and show us their 1 in 100 challenges during our live event.

Missed the event? Don’t worry! The full event is available to watch here.

The 6th Annual Purple Walk for Epilepsy Toronto is returning on Saturday July 11th, but it’s going to look a little different this year. These unprecedented times have changed the way we do a lot of things but it won’t stop us from joining together and supporting our community.

Since we can’t physically meet and walk, let’s do it virtually.

1 in 100 people in this country have epilepsy so we’re doing a #1in100 Virtual Purple Walk.  On Saturday July 11th lets come together virtually and do 100 of something. It could be anything!

100 laps around your block

100 dance steps

100 push ups.

It doesn’t matter.  What matters is that we stand together in support of those who desperately need us at this time.
