Suddenly Sleep Saturday in March 9th

National Sleep Awareness Week, this year takes place March 3-10, 2013, is an annual public education and awareness campaign to promote the importance of sleep. The week begins with the announcement of the National Sleep Foundation's Sleep in America poll results and ends with the clock change to Daylight Saving Time, where Americans lose one hour of sleep. The Foundation's Sleep Care Center members host events in their local communities throughout the week, providing sleep education and screening to the public.

The last Saturday of the week, is known as Suddenly Sleep Saturday and is also known as Narcolepsy Awareness Day.

On the last Sunday in 2011, March 13, Julie Flygare held the first SLEEP WALK in DC. This year the (3rd Annual) National Sleep Walk is today, March 3rd. Perhaps some day I'll travel for it....

Meanwhile, last year other Sleep Walk events started up across the country and around the world. Some for this year include:

SLEEP WALK West Coast in Sacramento, CA
SLEEP WALK Hawaii in Waikiki, HI
SLEEP WALK Dallas Texas

And, there are other events planned for Suddenly Sleepy Saturday, such as a Narcolepsy Bed Race in Roanoke, VA or Ireland's first International Narcolepsy Awareness Day:
