May Awareness Month 2019

Join the Challenge 2019

Join The Ehlers-Danlos Society in celebrating May as “Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome/Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder Awareness Month” and find your personal, team, or community challenge. We are challenging you to help spread EDS/HSD awareness by completing a challenge (or as many as you can) during the month of May.

We have a variety of individual and group challenges to suit your hobbies, interests, and abilities, as well as tools and resources to make it fun and easy to spread EDS/HSD awareness to your friends, family, and local communities. Individuals who raise $40* or complete/win Daily Challenge Competitions will earn a limited edition T-shirt! Check out our challenges below—we’re starting the the Proclamation Challenge, others will be added over the next weeks. Get inspired by our photo and video gallery. What will your challenge be?
