18 May 2021
May 17 is World NF Awareness Day. Another difficult year in lockdown across the country, a total of 92 iconic buildings and landmarks turned blue, the colour of NF, helping to Shine A Light on Neurofibromatosis in support of the 26,500 people affected in the UK. Making this year even brighter than last year!
Not only that, so many of you joined in from your homes, lighting up your gardens and homes blue on World NF Day, raising awareness in your local community. All four nations took part to stand together to raise awareness for Neurofibromatosis.
On a global scale, 12 countries took part and 319 buildings and landmarks lit up in total: this is the country-by-country count
- 92 - UK
- 73 - U.S.
- 59 - Australia
- 52 - Italy
- 27 - Spain
- 9 - Canada
- 7 - Netherlands
We would like to thank every building and landmark on the list, and every person who turned their homes blue to help make this year’s Shine A Light such a fantastic success.
As the country is now shining a light on Neurofibromatosis and started to be open again, why not get involved in our challenges or set up your own fundraiser over the summer.
