Lighting Up Burlington Pier for PSP Awareness: A Beacon of Hope

Lighting Up Burlington Pier for PSP Awareness: A Beacon of Hope

On May 30th, from 8 PM to midnight, the Burlington Pier will be bathed in a radiant teal glow. This illuminating event is more than just a beautiful spectacle; it’s a powerful statement of support and awareness for Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), a rare and devastating brain disorder.

Understanding PSP

Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) is a neurodegenerative disease that affects movement, balance, speech, vision, and swallowing. Its impact on individuals and their families is profound, often leading to significant disability. Currently, there is no cure for PSP, making awareness and research funding crucial.

Why Teal?

Teal is the designated color for PSP awareness, symbolizing the hope and strength of those affected by this condition. By lighting up the Burlington Pier in teal, we aim to bring attention to the challenges faced by PSP patients and their loved ones, fostering a community of support and understanding.

Join Us in Making a Difference

We invite everyone to stop by at the Burlington Pier on May 30th to witness this stunning display of solidarity.

Here’s how you can get involved:

- Visit the Pier: Come down to the Burlington Pier between 8 PM and midnight to see the teal lights in person. It's a great opportunity for a reflective evening by the waterfront.

- Share the Moment: Take photos and share them on social media using the hashtag #PSPAwareness. Your posts will help spread the word and show support to those battling PSP.

- Learn and Educate: Use this occasion to learn more about PSP. Share information with your friends and family to increase awareness. Visit PSPAwareness.com for more information. 

The Bigger Picture

This is part of a larger movement to bring attention to PSP and other rare neurological disorders. Every small action, like lighting up a pier or sharing a post, contributes to the broader goal of increasing understanding and funding for research.

By coming together as a community, we can make a significant impact. Let's light up the night in teal and shine a light on PSP. Your participation and support mean the world to those affected by this disease.

We look forward to seeing your photos of the Burlington Pier on May 30th!
