A walk for Narcolepsy and sleep awareness
Good morning, dear readers! Wow, I can’t believe that February is already almost over… it’s going to be Spring soon? So that’s why I’ve been seeing so many stores selling daffodils and Spring looking flowers! lol.
Anyways, I’m a happy camper. We haven’t had much of a Winter here in Berlin, but I’m more than happy to move onto spring ASAP.
Which brings me to the subject of this post: Sleep Walk 2012. One of the things I like to do in the Spring is to take walks and admire the many parks here in Berlin. For those of you who also like walks or are interested in Narcolepsy awareness efforts or both, there is a walk coming up in Washington, DC that you should know about: Sleep Walk 2012.
Sleep Walk 2012 is a walk for Narcolepsy awareness (and general sleep awareness), sponsored by Wake Up Narcolepsy. It will take place in Washington, DC on March 10, 2012 as part of National Sleep Awareness Week (March 10 is “Suddenly Sleepy Saturday,” a special day dedicated to Narcolepsy).
The event is free, although you need to register on the Sleep Walk website to participate. There will also be an awards ceremony for people who have made important contributions to Narcolepsy awareness in the past year.
I heard that at least 65 people have already signed up for the walk, so no worries about being the only one there!
Unfortunately, I will not be able to go, as I live in another country, but if you live in the Washington, DC area, this walk might be something fun to do for a morning, while also raising awareness of Narcolepsy. I would think that it would also be a good way to meet some people with Narcolepsy and their friends and family.
Even if you can’t go, you might learn more about what’s going on for National Sleep Awareness Week and Suddenly Sleepy Saturday at the Narcolepsy Network website on the topic.
Enjoy your weekend!
