Des­pi­te the co­ol and damp weat­her, the Eco Park was a great lo­ca­tion for the gat­he­ring. This event rai­sed funds for epi­lepsy sup­port, edu­ca­tion and awa­re­ness pro­grams th­roug­hout South­wes­tern On­ta­rio. The Sei­ze the Day event has be­co­me an an­nual com­mu­nity event, which con­ti­nues to grow in do­na­tions and par­ti­ci­pants each year. CEO, Mi­che­lle Fran­klin, ex­pres­sed that she is plea­sed by the high tur­nout sta­ting, “The sea of pur­ple shirts was truly heart­war­ming to wit­ness. Ama­zing to have over 400 mem­bers of our epi­lepsy com­mu­nity co­me to­get­her to rai­se funds and awa­re­ness”.
