National Osteogenesis Imperfecta Awareness Week, originated from and is scheduled around Wishbone Day (an international OI Awareness Day on May 6th). During Awareness Week, we encourage the OI community, Foundation, and supporters to use fundraising events, social media, and individual state proclamations to raise awareness for osteogenesis imperfecta.

Volunteers proclaimed OI Awareness Week in over 10 cities and states, as well as held multiple events nationwide. The OI community celebrated the international OI Awareness Day, Wishbone Day, on Friday, May 6, 2016 by wearing yellow to raise awareness. The OIF celebrated Wishbone Day by sharing facts and information via social media every hour for a consecutive twelve hours.
