Rattle Ya’ Bones Day

31 October 2021

Traditionally October 31 has been all about Halloween. Dressing up, trick-or-treating, and having fun! Until now! 
Musculoskeletal Australia now wants October 31 to also be known as ‘Rattle Ya’ Bones Day’. 

That’s because 7 million Australian lives are impacted by muscle, bone, and joint conditions like arthritis, back pain, osteoporosis, lupus and over 150 other musculoskeletal conditions. And many tell us they feel invisible. 

You can help us raise awareness of these conditions, have some fun and make these invisible conditions visible.

Remember, we want to show our support for people living with these conditions, so they no longer feel invisible.

Share your message on social media to show your support and help raise awareness.

E.g. This Halloween, I’m getting behind Rattle Ya’ Bones Day to raise awareness about muscle, bone and joint conditions.

It’s important to know support is available and something can be done.

Speak to your local pharmacist or call the FREE National MSK Help Line, weekdays on 1800 263 265.

Make a donation 

We’re asking you to support Rattle Ya’ Bones Day because you can help make muscle, bone and joint conditions visible and our sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, fathers, mothers, grandparents, friends, and workmates who live with these conditions feel supported and understood.

It’s time to make these invisible conditions visible.

Will you give $7 as a show of support to the 7 million Australians whose lives are impacted by these conditions? Monies raised will help us continue to provide much needed services and advocacy.
