Save The Date: SLEEP WALK 2012 on March 10 to raise awareness about narcolepsy & healthy sleep


On Saturday March 10th, the second annual SLEEP WALK to raise awareness about narcolepsy and healthy sleep for all will take place on the National Mall in Washington, DC.  March 10th is a special day of National Sleep Awareness Week dedicated to narcolepsy called “Suddenly Sleepy Saturday.”

With the official U.S. National Park Service Permits in hand – I’m SO excited to announce the official date and time for the event.  I will be hosting the event with Wake Up Narcolepsy, Inc – a non-profit dedicated to narcolepsy awareness and research.

When: Saturday March 10th, 2012 starting at 9:00am
Where: Meet at Sylvan Theatre, National Mall, Washington DC
(Sylvan Theatre is the bandstand at base of Washington Monument – near 15th St & Independence Ave.)
What to bring: Comfortable walking shoes & friends!

    for those of you who cannot make it to the "SLEEP WALK 2012" walk in Washington, DC, I offer in a spirit of contribution, an alternative. A "Sleep Walk 2012 (West Coast)" will be held in Sacramento, California on Saturday, March 10, 2012
    9:00am until 11:00am

    Thank you so much! I'm so excited about the California SLEEP WALK 2012 in Sacramento. I wish I could be in two places at once. Somehow I think you might have better weather. 😉
