May Awareness Month

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.

Our key campaigns include:

Light It UP 4 HD

Light It Up 4 HD is where iconic Melbourne and regional landmarks are lit up in blue. In 2019 over the weekend of the 24th-26th May we were thrilled to partner with:

  • Flinders St Station
  • Melbourne Town Hall
  • The MCG
  • AAMI Park Stadium
  • Melbourne Star Observation Wheel
  • Melbourne Central Shot Tower
  • Citylink Sound Tube
  • Bolte Bridge
  • Ballarat Town Hall

Community Day

Each year during May we host a free event whereby the community, professionals and researchers come together to share information and personal experiences. The topics and guest speakers selected represent the needs of the community.

In Memory

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.
