On the evening of March 26, 2021, the iconic Hill Centre Towers glowed a brilliant shade of purple in support of Purple Day, an initiative to provide awareness and hope for people living with epilepsy.
Purple Day was started in 2008 by a young Nova Scotian to bring global attention and support to one of the world’s most common and serious brain disorders. Approximately 2,500 citizens of Regina suffer from epilepsy (260,000 nationwide). The event is now celebrated worldwide every March 26th with communities uniting to wear purple, fly Purple Day flags and light-up local and national monuments in support of Epilepsy Awareness.
Other Regina landmarks joined the Hill Centre Towers in this illumination effort including Regina City Hall, the RCMP Heritage Museum and the MacKenzie Art Gallery.
