Healing Young Hearts Volunteers Invite You to Celebrate Purple Day at the Heilongjiang Children’s Center in the People’s Republic of China.
Healing Young Hearts Volunteers will hold a Purple Day Event at the Heilongjiang Children’s Center, Harbin, Heilongjiang province, on Saturday afternoon, March 26th, 2011. Show your support for people with epilepsy by stopping by the center to sign your name to our ‘Win in Life’ racing mural, featuring photos of our Healing Young Hearts Goodwill Ambassador, Olympic medal-winning cyclist Marion Clignet. Marion has epilepsy, and has beat seizures to the finish line by winning six world titles, 180 races and two Olympic medals.
This year on Purple Day local children will participate in the filming of an epilepsy education documentary at the Heilongjiang Children’s Center. The children will learn about epilepsy awareness and seizure first aid, take part in games organized by the Children’s Center, watch a fencing demonstration by the Chao Ye fencing club, enjoy an activity with the Lego Education Company, a calligraphy demonstration by the Chen Xiang Calligraphy School and enjoy a visit from “Harry Potter” in a purple cape. Happy Purple Day!
