Light Up a Landmark on Monday, October 9, 2023

PANDAS/PANS Awareness Day is a day of awareness for the estimated 1 in 200 children impacted globally! Inflamed Brain Alliance is leading the call in Canada to light up the country in the color red to unite both the PANDAS/PANS community and the country as a whole. The more buildings, landmarks and monuments illuminated, the greater the impact!

The goal of Light Up for PANDAS/PANS is to help spread the word and raise awareness for people living with PANDAS and PANS. Anyone can contribute to Light Up for PANDAS/PANS, and as our country lights up, we must remember that together, we are strong.

Join the effort to Light Up for PANDAS/PANS in 3 easy steps!

1. Sign Up

Complete the application(s) as required by the place(s) you are asking to light up. We have created a template request for your use, to make the #LightUpForPANDASPANS request of buildings and landmarks in your city or town. If the application does not accept requests made by third parties on behalf of IBA, let us know and we’ll submit the request for you.

2. Light Up

We want to hear from you! Fill out the form to let us know what landmark(s) you are requesting. Once the request(s) have been approved, fill out the form again to let us know so we can post on our Awareness Day webpage.

3. Share

Once the landmarks are lit up in the color red, share a picture on social media. Tag IBA and use our hashtags, so the entire community can see what we have done to shine a light on PANDAS/PANS!
