Throughout the year the Lyme Disease Association of Australia (LDAA) holds, sponsors, and promotes a variety of events. Such events include those run by various Lyme related or Lyme supportive organisations. These range from raising awareness of the plight of Lyme and Lyme-like disease sufferers, to raising funds for much needed research, or for continued advocacy, and there are events everyone can attend or support!
The May Lyme Project
The LDAA’s principal event each year is The May Lyme Project. The event is usually held in May each year. During the month of May the LDAA sponsors and supports an assortment of awareness and fundraising events occurring throughout Australia. The purpose of the event is simple; to raise awareness and funds for the on-going advocacy of Lyme and Lyme-like disease in Australia. Access a complete history of event awareness here.
The May Lyme Project is the LDAA’s principal awareness raising event. This year the LDAA and the Country Women’s Association of Australia (CWAA) are once again combining their efforts to support Australian Lyme patients. The purpose of the 2018 “#it’sAsign!” May Lyme Project is to raise awareness and funds to improve outcomes for current and future Australian Lyme patients. Although this campaign has now closed you can still donate to the LDAA, by simply clicking on the donate button.
If you participated in this year’s #itsAsign campaign, your picture may be on our #itsAsign 2018 May Lyme Awareness Gallery. If you are not there and would like to participate simply send your photograph to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add it to the wall.
This May we are asking everyone to wear a temporary bullseye rash tattoo to raise awareness for Lyme disease and Lyme-like illness in Australia.
The exact number of people with Lyme disease in Australia is unknown because our Government do not recognise the disease as locally acquired, nor collect statistics about it. Each year thousands of Australians are denied treatment for the disease with most left without support.
In past years the event has been conducted as part of world-wide Lyme awareness and protest initiatives. You can access the archives of previous events below.
