Shine a Light on NF

A Global Campaign to Make NF Visible

Shine a Light

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

Last year the global NF community Shined a Light on NF in 14 countries, reaching 578 buildings, bridges, waterfalls, a few castles and other architectural icons! The Tumour Foundation was proud to be a part of this worldwide initiative.

We are pleased to share the following BC landmarks and buildings are once again helping make NF visible by joining the 2023 campaign. Keep your eyes on the following sites on International NF Awareness Day on May 17th. And if you know of a building that shines coloured lights please let us know and we will ask them to join the NF campaign.

Shine a Light at home

Shine a Light on NF makes NF visible by lighting homes, buildings, and landmarks across the globe in blue and green, the official colors of NF. You can bring this effort to your neighborhood by lighting up your home in blue and green.

You can also decorate your driveway or sidewalk with chalk pictures, messages, or NF facts.

Wear Blue and Green
Wear blue and green on May 17 in honor of World NF Awareness Day and green and blue on May 22 for NF2 Awareness Day!  Find anything blue and/or green in your closet (we promise we won't judge if you're in PJs all day!)
Share NF Facts

Teach others about NF using our Resource Library. Consider sharing one NF fact a day throughout the month on social media, making NF fact lawn signs, or download materials and email to friends, coworkers, teachers, or family who might want to learn more about NF.

Let’s work together to Shine a Light on NF!
