- OWN THE EQUINOX -
AUGUST 22 - SEPTEMBER 16
3RD GLOBAL USHER SYNDROME AWARENESS DAY:
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2017
Starting August 22, 2017, we will Own the Equinox again. This 26-day challenge will culminate in the third annual global Usher Syndrome Awareness Day that will start at 8:00 AM on Saturday, September 16 in Melbourne, Australia.
The autumnal equinox marks the start of days that contain more darkness than light. It is a powerful metaphor for the threat of Usher syndrome. We will Own the Equinox, claiming the third Saturday in September as Usher Syndrome Awareness Day. This event will span the globe, with families participating in Europe and North and South America, before wrapping up at 8:00 PM in Fairbanks, Alaska. We will take a 12-hour event and make it last for 31 hours, pushing off the darkness for the USH community.
HOW YOU CAN OWN THE EQUINOX

Get moving on August 22nd for the next 25 days until we all join together in spirit on September 16th, Usher Syndrome Awareness Day.
