Supporters Unite for Sixth-Annual Color the World Orange™ for CRPS/RSD Awareness
New York, New York - November 4
The sixth-annual Color The World Orange™, aimed at spreading awareness of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), also known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), is Nov. 4, 2019. Held globally on the first Monday of November each year, the event seeks to bring attention to this poorly understood pain disorder.
Around the world, more than 160 buildings, landmarks and bridges in eight countries, including Niagara Falls, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, the antennas of Willis Tower in Chicago, THE SSE ARENA, Wembley in London, the CN Tower in Toronto, Eden Park, New Zealand’s national stadium, in Auckland, New Zealand, the Superdome in New Orleans, the Story Bridge in Brisbane, Australia and Mansion House in Dublin are all scheduled to be lit orange on November 4 for this year’s Color The World Orange™.
The easiest way to get involved is to wear orange and post a picture to social media with the hashtag: #CRPSORANGEDAY.
“Color The World Orange™ was started in 2014 to bring awareness to a debilitating pain condition that too few people know about or understand,” the Color The World Orange™ team said. “We hope this day, the sixth-annual Color The World Orange™, will allow all those affected by CRPS/RSD to join together and show the world that while we are in pain, we are strong.”
