Help us Shine a Light on NF!

(hover over image above)

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

Last year, together, we secured 326 landmarks in 13 countries to Shine a Light on NF, and we're excited to see that grow in even more places around the world this year.

For NF Awareness Month 2020, 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?

The following places have signed on to be part of the 2020 "Shine a Light on NF" event in BC, Canada and around the world. Help us grow this list!
