National Epilepsy Awareness Month
November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month. The Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado (EFCO) is calling "all hands on deck" to join us in heightening the public profile and understanding of epilepsy across our state. The following provides you with suggestions on how to achieve success on your mission!
EFCO has put together a list of challenges that we’re throwing out to brave and bold souls who are willing to go the extra mile to raising epilepsy awareness. Click here for more information!
Support EFCO by treating yourself to a meal out, get a jump on holiday shopping or add a surprising splash of color by getting a purple hair extension. For more information and a list of participating organizations, click here.
During the month of November, hop on Facebook, Twitter, your blog or your website and raise awareness about Epilepsy. Follow EFCO’s Facebook page and share our posts as we throw out Awareness Challenges and Fun Facts about epilepsy. To follow us on Facebook, click here!
EFCO can provide you with electronic flyers, images and bracelets to help your raise awareness. Please contact us at 888.378.9779 to request materials.
Purple parties, purple ribbons, dinners, nights out or take friends dressed in purple to the 16th street mall to talk about epilepsy. Whatever you dream up will help people become aware about what epilepsy is! Click here to see what other people have done.
You are not alone! To share your story and read the stories of this year’s EFCO ambassadors as well as the stories of others in our community, please click here.
Hold a clothing drive or arrange to have a delivery truck pick up your goods. It’s a great way to raise support for EFCO’s programs while cleaning out your closet. Please contact our Donation Center for more information - 303.428.5600.
