Created by
Karen Smith and Lisa Hilton
founders of Global Lyme & Invisible Illness Organization

Founded in memory of Theda Myint of Australia, who passed away from Lyme disease on July 25, 2013.
Theda loved red shoes.
So her friends, Karen and Lisa, who would become the founders of the
Australian Lyme disease support group, chose red shoes as the symbol for this annual awareness event.
International Red Shoe Day remembers all those who have passed away from Lyme disease and other invisible diseases.
