Alopecia Awareness Week held in the 3rd week of November. This annual event is a great time to spread the word about this condition which is so often misunderstood. AAAF hosts a range of events across the country during this week, and invite you to attend, or to host your own event! Some regular highlights include the Boldest Bald Brunch, and the Crazy Hair Day, which takes place in several schools and youth organisations across Australia.

Below are some of the celebrations and events we will be running this year. Be sure to check our events calendar or our Facebook page for all the latest updates.
Boldest Bald Brunch – Wednesday 15th November 2017
Host a morning tea at your workplace, school or community group to raise funds for Alopecia Areata. This can be a fantastic way to support a friend or loved one with alopecia, or to raise awareness of this condition.
Crazy Hair Day – Friday 17th November 2017
We’re looking to get schools and community groups across Australia involved in this campaign to improve awareness of alopecia, combat bullying, and funds for research. Whether you’re involved at kinder, primary, secondary or even in university, this is a great opportunity to have some fun and in the process inform others about this disease.
Send your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you with the necessary details for your school.
