#LightItUp4HD

CN TowerMay Awareness 2016

Believe-Logo_2015_WebVersion

Help us light up the world!
Together let’s raise the visibility of Juvenile HD and HD.

Thanks to Jamie’s enthusiasm in our May Awareness 2015 campaign, and the encouragement from volunteers across Canada (and even the globe!) we are expanding #LightItUp4HD. Let’s light up the world in purple and blue, for Juvenile HD and HD, throughout the month of May 2016! The more days we can light up, the more awareness we will bring to HD. Our goal is to #LightItUp4HD, somewhere in the world, each day of the month. Rather than one day, we are looking to celebrate May Awareness each and every day
of May 2016.
