The Awareness Calender for 2021

Even with modern medicine evolving more and more, the strength of human connection is one of the biggest tools that we have to fight health conditions. This is why awareness days, weeks and months are so important. They bring us together, spread knowledge and create support about a certain cause.

Around these periods there are usually also fundraising and educational projects that create empowerment and strength around a whole community. Even the people that surround someone with a health condition.

You have probably heard about the big awareness movements such as Diabetes Awareness Month in November or Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, but there are many more you probably didn’t know about. For example Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month in March or World Mental Health Day on October 10.

To have an overview of all the awareness projects for 2021 we give you an overview below. Put the most important days in your agenda and make sure you wear the awareness merchandise for your cause!
