Awareness Month

Give back to the community

October is Spina Bifida Awareness Month—a time to celebrate the hundreds of thousands of people living with Spina Bifida. Every October, we share community stories that challenge us to raise more awareness and support around those living with Spina Bifida.  As a community, we can do this by raising awareness about Spina Bifida either in our own circles or to the larger networks of which we are apart. It’s also a great time for us to challenge ourselves to find new ways to get involved in raising awareness and in advocacy activities.

Every October, we connect with thousands of people via our social channels to raise awareness for #SpinaBifida. We hope you’ll join us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Our voices are stronger together!
