Fifth Annual Red Shoe Day
Red Shoe Day is coming up quickly. This will be our fifth Red Shoe Day to honor those we have lost to Lyme Disease and related illnesses.
We ask everyone to wear red shoes on July 25th to remember those fallen warriors we have lost. Some people are having get togethers to honor those they love. You can post your pictures, ideas and group gatherings on our Red Shoe Day Facebook Page.
We made these buttons and shirts also so that people will understand what the red shoes represent. The money earned from these will help us become a Global Charity Non Profit. Visit this link to see the Online Red Shoe Day Shop.
Our goals are to:
- Continue our recognition of those we lost through Red Shoe Day.
- Work with other programs such as Recycle for Lyme to offer grants for Lyme patients treatments around the world.
- Global Lyme & Invisible Illness Organisation (GLiIO) is a non-for- profit (currently applying for charity status) organisation.
- Connect people living with Lyme & other Invisible Illness' with other people in their own, and other countries.
- Unite countries around the Globe for Awareness In May: International Lyme Awareness Month.
Our hearts go out to the families and friends and those in our community who have lost loved ones. We wear these red shoes to honor those we have lost and to let the families know their loved ones are not forgotten and that we continue to work on Lyme awareness in their name.
History of Red Shoe Day
Red Shoe Day was founded by Global Lyme and Invisible Illness Organisation (GLilO) in memory of Australian Lyme Patient, Theda Myint who left this earth on the 25th July 2013. The Inaugural Red Shoe Day was held on the 25th July 2014, and this day has quickly becoming established as an annual Remembrance Day to remember not only Theda, but all those lost to Lyme and other invisible illnesses (such as ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia) around the world.

“There are three deaths. The first is when the body ceases to function. The second is when the body is consigned to the grave. The third is that moment, sometime in the future, when your name is spoken for the last time.”
Thank you for joining us to prolong the last and final death of friends and loved ones by always speaking their name!
