Balance Awareness Week Volunteers Needed

Every September, the Vestibular Disorders Association (VEDA) hosts Balance Awareness Week with the goal of raising awareness across the nation for inner ear balance disorders.  This year Balance Awareness Week is September 16-22, 2013 with the theme “Defeat Dizziness” (https://vestibular.org/BAW).  VEDA is encouraging cities around the country to get involved and be a part of Balance Awareness Week 2013.

Over the years, Seattle Dizzy Group has participated in Balance Awareness Week in various ways including email campaigns, letters to Congress, an annual Balance Awareness walk, Balance wristband fundraisers, guest speakers, and a book drive, etc.  This year, Seattle Dizzy Group will be working closely with VEDA to arrange local Balance Awareness Week activities.  We are currently recruiting volunteers to help with a steering committee that will plan and execute Balance Awareness Week events throughout the Seattle area.  The committee will meet once a month May-September.  This is an exciting opportunity for volunteers.  We hope you will consider joining us.  With your help, we can make Balance Awareness Week 2013 a success!

Find out more about Balance Awareness Week and how you can get involved at the Dizzy Support Group Meeting on Saturday, May 11th (1-3 pm at Green Lake Library,  (www.facebook.com/seattledizzygroup/events ).  If you would like to be a Balance Awareness Week volunteer but you won’t be able to attend the May 11th meeting, please contact Seattle Dizzy Group (info@seattledizzygroup.org) or VEDA Development Director Tony Staser (tony.staser@vestibular.org or 503-294-9085) for more information.
