Suddenly Sleepy Saturday
You Helped Raise Narcolepsy Awareness by Celebrating Suddenly Sleepy Saturday 2017!
Suddenly Sleepy Saturday, also known as Narcolepsy Awareness Day, was held on March 11, 2017. Suddenly Sleepy Saturday falls on the day before Americans turn their clocks ahead one hour for daylight savings time, a time when even those who do not have narcolepsy may experience sudden sleepiness or daytime drowsiness, just as people with narcolepsy do every day.
Narcolepsy Network encouraged members and supporters to get involved by requesting a proclamation from state governors, mayors, or other local governing officials to recognize Suddenly Sleepy Saturday.
In 2017, supporters in 31 U.S. states requested proclamations. Governors of 17 states approved the request and issued proclamations, so did mayors in 12 U.S. cities. Click on the map to where Suddenly Sleepy Saturday was already proclaimed for 2017.
