Help us Shine a Light on NF!

Shine a Light on NF brings awareness into the community by lighting up buildings, bridges and monuments in blue and green.

In 2018, 205 landmarks across the globe shined their lights for NF, including five prominent buildings right here in Vancouver!

For NF Awareness Month 2019, we are asking you to help us reach beyond this goal. Look at the buildings and landmarks in your city/town. Is there one (or two) you could invite into the campaign to shine a light on NF?
