2020 World PVNH Disorder Awareness Day Events

For the 9th year, WORLD PVNH DISORDER AWARENESS DAY will see landmarks light up pink and yellow (or pink or yellow, if only one colour is allowed) for individuals, young and old, affected by Periventricular Nodular Heterotopia (PVNH) and other neuronal heterotopia disorders such as Grey Matter Heterotopia (GMH) and Subcortical Band Heterotopia (SBH) – see complete list of landmarks below. In addition, families and friends around the world will be sporting their brightest pink and yellow clothing or accessories for the PAINT IT PINK AND YELLOW campaign. Let your imagination roam free on how you will express your support. Join our online event for more details, and follow us @PVNHday and @PVNHsupport / share your story in social media with photos and videos using #PVNHday #Paintitpinkandyellow #PVNHloud #PVNHawareness #SBHawareness

We could not make such a positive impact without the support of landmarks around the world. Thank you all for being by our side on our awareness journey. Below is our growing list of confirmed landmarks. We will continue to add new ones until August 7. Do you have a landmark (monument, tower, bridge, mall, city properties, places of workship, etc.) that lights up for a cause? Please let us know on Twitter @PVNHday.
