Purple Gear

You may remember the Purple Wedges. Well, the wedges aren’t exactly practical for a walk on the Washington Monument Grounds. So, I’ll be wearing a great new pair of purple Converse sneakers.


If you will be at the walk, be sure to pick up our fun #EpilepsyButtons FREE in the Walkers Village! Then share a picture of yourself or your loved one wearing the pin. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #EpilepsyButtons when you post your photos. We want to see them all! I can’t wait to see everyone sporting these fun pins. See you there!

If you can’t attend find out how you can order your own #EpilepsyButtons!
