I'm recruiting a team across the world to cycle on June 12 to raise money for research through the Hypersomnia Foundation. We want to say that the sun will never set on our team, so please join up, click "Donate" (anonymously is fine) and send me a photo of you on your bike that I can post on this page. Include any clues to your location.
HF is a nonprofit that advocates for people with idiopathic hypersomnia (IH) and related disorders. Have you ever returned from a trip and then stumbled through a day of work, jet-lagged and counting the hours until bedtime? People with IH fight overwhelming sleepiness every day, and a good night's sleep doesn't make it better - they also have extreme difficulty waking (sleep inertia) and can struggle cognitively (brain fog). It's pretty hard to work, study, and maintain relationships with that kind of sleepiness. Research is the key. Learn more at hypersomniafoundation.org
