COLOUR THE WORLD ORANGE & NOVEMBER AWARENESS MONTH 2018

Our second CRPS Awareness Month saw 34 landmarks sign up to turn orange for CRPS awareness in support of Colour the World Orange campaign. What an outstanding effort!

Patients, advocates and supporters also dressed in orange and posted photos to social media; information booths were held in shopping centres, medical clinics and hospitals, and we even had a drift car carrying an awareness message around Barbagallo race track in Perth.

COLOUR THE WORLD ORANGE & NOVEMBER AWARENESS MONTH 2017

At the end of August 2017, having only just become officially registered as an Incorporated Not-For-Profit Association, we set out to organise the biggest ‘Colour the World Orange’ campaign that has ever been held in Australia.

Our beautiful country responded to our requests to shine a light on Complex Regional Pain Syndrome by agreeing to light up 30 Landmarks in orange lights.

Our thanks to United in the Fight for CRPS Awareness, our campaign partner, Kelly Gowland who organised all of the light ups in Goulburn and Rell Garrington who organised the Ipswich lightups and ran a very successful raffle with her sister Rachel Hogan throughout November.

Thank you also to the entire CRPS community who created awareness during November by wearing orange, CRPS ribbons, CRPS t-shirts, showing up at the orange landmarks and taking photos to post on social media of all of your activities through the month.
