In honour of Ben May we will all be running/walking 10km on the 27th March 2021 to raise awareness for Epilepsy.


In honour of Ben May we will be holding 3 events across the world to raise awareness for Epilepsy. These events are:

1. K's for Ben May held at Synergy in Wellington New Zealand on 26th March 2021 - https://fb.me/e/Drm2vWBI

2. A 10km event will be taking place on 27th March 2021 along the Paekakariki Escarpment Track, Wellington - https://fb.me/e/yE8koBNT

3. Virtual 10km 27th March 2021 for all those throughout the rest of the world. Due to Covid restrictions other events have had to be postponed so Ben's friends and family outside of Wellington will all be running/walking 10km in his honour.

We ask that everyone that gets involved posts a photo with the hashtag #10kforBenMay or if on Instagram please tag the 10kforbenmay account and makes a donation to Epilepsy NZ to show their support .

Before Ben's untimely passing he had been planning an event to raise funds for his chosen foundation – Epilepsy New Zealand. He had intended to help raise awareness by sharing parts of his own journey and some of the struggles he and others face in their personal battle with epilepsy. But more than that, he wanted to share and inspire others that it should never stop you chasing your goals and dreams.

Purple Day is about raising the awareness around epilepsy and its impact. It began in 2008 in Canada by a 9 year old called Megan Cassidy who painted her school purple. We appreciate your support in our efforts to continue spreading awareness.

We are unbelievably grateful to those who are going to take part as it will continue to honour Ben's mission x
