International Red Shoe Day

International Red Shoe Day, celebrated every July 25, was founded in memory of Australian Lyme disease patient Theda Myint, who passed away from the disease in 2013.

The day was established in 2014 by Myint’s friends as a way to pay tribute to her, as well as to others worldwide who have lost their battles with Lyme or similar illnesses.

The ‘red shoe’ was chosen as the symbol for the day because of Myint’s fondness for red shoes and how they are an integral part of her identity and fight.
