On Oct 9, 2023 Canada was #Red4PANS!
To bring World PANS PANDAS Awareness Day into the public light, IBA launched a Canada-wide Light-Up for PANS PANDAS landmark lighting campaign. It was opportunity for families impacted by PANS PANDAS to raise awareness, make connections and receive support from their communities. Together we spread the word & raised awareness for people living with PANS PANDAS!

60+ Landmarks Illuminated #Red4PANS!
Canada’s PANS PANDAS community has created momentum this year by illuminating buildings, landmarks, monuments from coast-to-coast as a powerful visual symbol of hope to help spark greatly needed awareness, acknowledgement and change.
IBA volunteers submitted 100+ applications across Canada to #LightUpForPANSPANDAS in RED, and the response was overwhelming.
Here’s a list of all our participating sites (below) and a PDF version. Thanks all of our #Red4PANS partners!
Unable to Attend a Light-Up?
Whether you visit a landmark or light-up your own neighbourhood your involvement counts! If you’re unable to get to a landmark lighting, we’d still love you to participate by using your own home lighting in RED (porch lights, gemstones, lanterns). Be sure to tag us in your photos!
