CCDS Awareness Day

Saturday, February 1, 2020

February first is Cerebral Creatine Deficiency Syndrome (CCDS) Awareness Day!
Help spread awareness of CCDS by celebrating this day in your community.
We kicked off our first celebration of CCDS Day in 2017 and are looking forward to our fourth annual celebration!

Some ideas for individuals in their hometown include:

  • Create a personalized campaign on our Crowdrise Page (Scroll down to the orange button “Create a Fundraiser”, enter your CCDS story and pictures, post on Facebook and it links back to support ACD’s campaign!)
  • Speak at your child’s school about CCDS.
  • Wear CCDS apparel, available at the ACD Shop.
  • Distribute awareness brochures and share your story with pediatricians, developmental pediatricians, pediatric neurologists, and geneticists in your area. For brochures and other materials to share on CCDS Awareness day, please email
  • Blog, Tweet, Facebook, and Instagram your CCDS story and pictures of you spreading awareness on CCDS day, using the hashtags #ccds #ccdsday and #acd.
