Please note: due to Corona Virus we will not able to run our Awareness Month events for 2020 as normal. However we are continuing with our Go Blue for May 22 campaign and In Memory.
In collaboration with our partner organisations in Canada and America, each year we pledge the month of May to raise vital awareness of Huntington’s Disease.
Throughout this month we run campaigns and events to help raise the profile of Huntington’s disease and the work we do to help support those who suffer from this incurable disease.
Go Blue on May 22 is an awareness-raising initiative that HV introduced in 2019.
It is a fun way to get involved and show your support for people living with HD.
You can interpret ‘Go Blue’ in any way you would like – wear blue clothing, dye your hair blue or decorate your home or office in blue – get creative and help us raise much needed awareness of Huntington’s disease.
Three ways to get involved
This campaign is a trusted and welcomed avenue through which our community can openly acknowledge, share and express their grief associated with losing a family member. A loved one is remembered by their name and the age in which they passed away from HD. This is represented in a video that we share across our social media platforms and website. To have a loved one remembered please contact us, give us a call, or message us privately on Facebook and request to have a loved one remembered. This tribute is played during May.
The Community Day will be held during October this year and details will be updated in due course.
