Lake Huron Shoreline Rocks Red in September for FASD

The Lake Huron Shoreline Community Assessible Services Team (CAST) presents FASD Day, September 9th, all day and running into the entire month of September.

This year, several monuments and landmarks around the Lake Huron Shoreline will be rocking red for FASD to raise awareness of this disability. We are asking local businesses to join schools, offices, and service agencies across this region to light up red on September 9th in honor of FASD Awareness Day.

First celebrated in 1999, FASD day is devoted to raising awareness of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) to improve prevention of FASD and provide diagnosis and support for individuals with FASD.  FASD Day on the ninth day of the ninth month was chosen to highlight the importance of going alcohol free for the full nine months of pregnancy. The first FSD day was celebrated on 9/9/99.

The theme for this year’s FASD awareness month is Building Strengths and Abilities as, historically, much of the research and discussion about FASD has focused on challenges.

Along with community members, buildings and monuments across Canada will also be rocking red in September. This year, iconic Canadian monuments and landmarks will be lighting up red on September 9th in honour of FASD Awareness Day.

Grab your red flood light, Christmas twinkle lights, or LED light bulbs and show your support by Rocking Red. Be sure to take a picture and share it on social media with the hashtag #FASDMonth2022, or post your event to:, Reach Out to Your Monument.
