Friday May the 15th is MPS Awareness Day - looking to raise knowledge among us all of degenerative illnesses.
For many in Corby it's a chance to support a young lad by the name of Luke MacDonald - and to do that many are "Wearing Blue for Luke". #wearblueforluke
That includes children at a number of primary schools today - with kids at Rockingham Primary set to follow later this month.
As well as joining in with the social media hashtag, fundraising efforts are being organised for Luke and his family - a fun night of entertainment is being planned for the Hazel Tree pub on June the 5th.
Before then there are blue T-shirts on sale today at the Corby Indoor Market in the town centre - kindly supported by Osprey Lettings, these are being sold at £5 a time and all proceeds are going to Luke and his family.
Seth Lane, the five year old who was supported by people in Corby and worldwide, has now had his bone marrow transplant.
According to the latest blog from his family he appears to be making steady progress - you can read the blog here
