Epilepsy Durham Region (EDR) is celebrating its 30th Anniversary throughout 2017. In celebration of this milestone, our goal is to make an impact in the community through various awareness campaigns to increase the understanding of what epilepsy is.


EDR's Purple Flamingo Campaign will begin on January 10th, 2017 and run through to December 2017; it will have a wide reach throughout Durham Region and create a strong sense of community. The path from a few volunteers in a church basement to being on the threshold of the opening of a dedicated epilepsy clinic here in Durham Region has been a remarkable voyage. We are confident that with the success of our celebrations our clinic will be a reality for families.


You can arrange for a flock to visit your place of business – preregister by contacting Dianne or Chelsea, your official Flamingo Shepherds. The flocks will circulate weekly to a new business, the premise being that every business who registers will make a charitable donation of $300 to send the flock on its way.


Just a few of the perks for participating in this very unique - one of a kind event:

• You’ll be amongst the superheroes in Durham Region to showcase your cape and celebrate EDR
• We will post your photos and your company name/logo on website for the entire year
• We will provide your staff with one complementary 'Lunch and Learn' session about epilepsy
