Light it Red for Dyslexia 2019 – help us shine a light on dyslexia within your community

Light it Red for Dyslexia is back in 2019 - help us shine a light on dyslexia in your community

Code Read Dyslexia Network (Code Read) are excited to announce that the Light it Red for Dysleixa Campaign is changing to an exciting new format in 2019.

You can help us shine a light on dyslexia by hosting an event of your choice!

This year we are asking the community to consider running fundraising events with the theme of Light it Red for Dyslexia (please note that you can elect not to fundraise but this will exclude you from the major prize,  which is a Sydney Experience Package).

Your event must incorporate the Light it Red theme and the core values of Code Read and all light ups must be registered via this platform whether choosing to fundraise or not.

The Code Read core values are to create a better future where people impacted by dyslexia are acknowledged through early identification, understanding and inclusion; supported with evidence based teaching and access to assistive technology and accommodations; empowered with equal access to opportunity.
