Over 600,000 people in the UK live with epilepsy, and around one in 50 people will experience the condition in their life without knowing they have it.
Epilepsy is a neurological condition that is heavily treated by medication.
Nicholas Wheeler, 27, was diagnosed with epilepsy at eight-years-old and has taken medication for 19 years.
When he was younger, Nick would experience a seizure nearly every six months.
“It did make me nervous; I was somewhat on my toes waiting for the next one to happen,” he said.
“At first people had no clue about it, so I would have to explain what would happen if I were to have an episode and I still do that now.
“Through the years, people have become to have an understanding of it because public awareness has grown.”
The campaign was started in 2008 by Canadian, Cassidy Megan, and soon became a global fundraising event.
One charity involved is the Epilepsy Society, who’s aim is to “carry on the conversation.”
Nicola Swanborough, head of external affairs at the Epilepsy Society, said: “It’s a brilliant fundraiser, where the money goes towards funding a helpline for those suffering and to medical research in helping find a cure.
“It’s very much driven by people and wouldn’t happen without the support.”
