Perth Glory FC is joining in this week’s “Purple Day” as part of a worldwide campaign to help raise funds for people suffering from epilepsy.
According to leading research more than 50 million people across the globe are affected by the condition and close to a million Australians develop it at some stage in their life.
Right now, more than 25-thousand Western Australians live with the disorder.
Fortunately epilepsy is not a lifelong disorder and many people outgrow or have a long term remission from seizures.
This year Perth Glory FC is playing its part to help raise funds to battle the brain condition.
The official colour for this year’s World Epilepsy Day is purple and to help make a difference, Glory has donated a signed purple strip, which will be auctioned online from this Thursday (March 26).
To make a bid just go to http://purpleday.stylight.com.au/perth-glory-signed-shirt/ and all funds raised will go to www.epinet.org.au to help people with epilepsy.
If you want to be part of the purple army, get to nib Stadium this weekend, when Perth Glory hosts Asian Champions Western Sydney Wanderers at nib Stadium.
Kick-off is at 6.30pm.
You can get tickets at the gate or CLICK HERE now to purchase them.
