Annual Events

Join us at one of our annual events to raise awareness for this invisible disorder, and of course, have some fun!

Bed Race

Teams construct, decorate, and race beds around a parking lot to raise awareness and money for Narcolepsy Network. Teams consist of five participants with one person on the bed at all times. This event has been taking place since in Roanoke, Virginia since 2013 and went across the pond to join forces with Narcolepsy Ireland, SOUND (Sufferers of Unique Narcolepsy Disorder), and Narcolepsy UK in Dublin, Ireland in 2018.



From power walkers to leisure walkers, dog walkers to little ones just learning to walk, this a fun-filled event for everyone. In 2017, the walk expanded to both coasts of the US with locations in New York City and Seattle, Washington. Learn more or register for the walk here.



Annual Conference

This is a weekend that is dedicated to people with narcolepsy (PWNs) and their friends and loved ones. We will have breakout sessions for just about everyone! Meet other people with narcolepsy and their supporters, learn about treatments, and hear the latest research developments. Learn more or get updates on this website.


Suddenly Sleepy Saturday 

Suddenly Sleepy Saturday, also known as Narcolepsy Awareness Day, falls on the day before Americans turned 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.

We invite you to get involved by requesting that your state’s governor issue a proclamation officially recognizing Suddenly Sleepy Saturday. We also urge you to make a request at the local level to your city mayor or county council. See what proclamations were made last year or learn how you can get involved on this page.

Get involved by having your own event! Whether it’s a 5k or a charity night at a local restaurant, tell us about your event so we can help publicize it!
