Alopecia Areata Awareness Month - SeeUs in September

SeeUs is both our new awareness and fundraising campaign, and what we tell our communities as we raise awareness of alopecia areata to a whole new level with events across the country during the month of September.  The SeeUs Campaign is our approach to reducing the stigma of difference and celebrating the uniqueness and resiliency of people living with these conditions.  Alopecia Areata Awareness Month is the perfect time to share your story and host an event so that your community can better understand alopecia areata and living with difference. Together we can illustrate our common wellness and humanity in the face of adversity and raise funds to support the essential work of research, education and awareness taking place at NAAF each day!

You can participate too! If there’s an activity you and your friends and family enjoy, it’s extremely likely you can build a SeeUs fundraiser around it. This creates energy and enthusiasm, not only for you but for those attending. So what sort of event is right for you? Art show? Bowl-a-thon? Jeans Day? Making a Video and sharing it with your social networks? Photobombing with friends? You tell us!

NAAF Rounds the Bases with Team Up Events!

As September is Alopecia Areata Awareness Month, once again our friends in both major and minor league baseball organizations show their support for NAAF as we “Team Up for Alopecia Areata!” 

Sixteen teams (so far!) including the Philadelphia Phillies, Los Angeles Dodgers. Colorado Rockies, and NAAF’s hometown heroes, the three-time champion San Francisco Giants have scheduled events and many will be  hosting a variety of activities including awareness booths, public service announcements, first pitches, and more! 

Teams and events will be announced as we confirm them. 

Like to see your team get in the game? Contact Gary Sherwood at gary@naaf.org if you would like to host an awareness event with your local major or minor league team. 

And remember, awareness isn’t only for baseball! We strongly encourage other sporting awareness events in September and throughout the year. Let us know your favorite sport and what you would like to do to raise alopecia areata awareness. 

Root, root, root for the home team…and let’s increase awareness today!
