holds weekly Fluro Friday sunrise sessions at beaches around the world to raise
awareness for mental health. We dress up in the brightest outfits possible and

questions, which are normally avoided about mental health. Everyone is welcome
and it is a free event.
Friday's are started by everyday people at beaches all around the world. Check
out the Fluro Friday page for all the beaches currently getting fluro on Friday's.
