Join us in April and May in our support of World Autism Day, the Launch of National Road Safety Week, International ME/CFS Awareness Day, World IBD Day, World MS Day and WOW Day – Wear Orange Wednesday.
On 2 April was UN World Autism Day and the Tower lit up BLUE in recognition of the wonderful work of the Autism Association of WA. On the night more than 100 iconic landmarks around the globe, including the Empire State Building in New York City and Willis Tower in Chicago participated.
At the end of the month, 30 April, we will see the start of the National Road Safety Week and this year, Perth has been chosen as the location for the launch. The Tower will be joining with other WA landmarks to glow YELLOW, in remembrance of the hundreds of lives lost on Australian roads.
12 May is the ME/CFS, Lyme and FM International Awareness Day, highlighting the issues for people with neuro-immune illnesses. The Tower will participate in the ‘Light up the Night’ campaign and will shine BLUE to help raise awareness and promote the need for more research funding.
On 19 May the world, including the Tower lights up in the IBD global colour PURPLE to raise awareness for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD’s) that affect over 75,000 Australians and more than 5 million worldwide.
Then it’s ‘WOW’ Day once again. Wear Orange Wednesday (WOW Day) is 23 May and provides an opportunity for the community to recognise and celebrate the hard work and dedication of our State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers. The Tower will glow ORANGE and we encourage everyone to join the campaign and wear something orange on the day. The last day of the month, 30 May, our lights be RED in support for World MS Day
