Lily’s Lemonade Stands
Lily’s Fund for Epilepsy Research invites kids and adults to host their own lemonade stands anytime and anywhere throughout the summer. It’s fun, easy and a great way to raise awareness of epilepsy, and money for important epilepsy research at UW-Madison.
At the age of 9, Nova Scotia resident Cassidy Megan created the idea of Purple Day in 2008, motivated by her own struggles with epilepsy. The Epilepsy Association of Nova Scotia came on board in 2008 to help develop Cassidy’s idea. In 2009, the Anita Kaufmann Foundation and Epilepsy Association of Nova Scotia joined forces. In 2010, Lily’s Fund joined the Purple Day campaign to raise awareness about epilepsy.
