Monday, February 28, 2022 is Rare Disease Day and we are asking YOU, our PWS community, to help shine a light on this important day! There are many ways we can come together even if we don’t do so physically. Being part of a global chain of lights in recognition of Rare Disease Day is one example. You can be part of it by helping to light up monuments and buildings near you in Rare Disease Day colors (blue, green, pink and purple). You can even light your own home in these colors and encourage your friends and neighbors to do the same!
PWSA | USA has received confirmation that the followings buildings/landmarks will light up in recognition of Rare Disease Day on February 28th:
The Florida State Capitol's Old Capitol Steps
The Lowry Bridge in Minnesota
The Miami Freedom Tower in Miami, Florida
The Bob Kerry Bridge in Omaha, Nebraska
The Capella Tower in Minneapolis, Minnesota
I-35W St. Anthony Falls Bridge in Minneapolis, Minnesota
Our ask to the PWS community is if you receive approval from a landmark in your area, or if you simply light up your home in Rare Disease Day colors, please share a picture with us at email@example.com. Through this effort, we can show the world just how important Rare Disease Day is to our community.
