A supporter ran the NYC Marathon and another supporter ran the Chicago Marathon in honor of Color The World Orange™.
There were 71 proclamations granted in the US, including 23 from state governors. Two proclamations were granted in Canada.
There were multiple news articles and TV news clips about the third-annual Color The World Orange™!
Color The World Orange™ was even added to the National Day Calendar!
Supporters raised more than $9,115 for the RSDSA to be used for research.
Around the world supporters wore orange to bring awareness to CRPS/RSD on Color The World Orange™, tweeting and posting pictures to Instagram with the hashtag #CRPSORANGEDAY™. Friends, family, colleagues and classmates all wore orange, hosting events and meetups. Some supporters even decorated their houses with orange lights to bring awareness.
All of these events were made possible due to the hard work of our wonderful supporters!
