Bathing local landmarks in a color in recognition of a cause has become a trend. But this might be the first time for teal.
The Aerial Lift Bridge and Enger Tower will be aglow in teal on Sept. 14 and 15 to raise awareness of ovarian cancer, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.
Duluth native Kristine Greer started contacting officials in January in her effort to add the Duluth landmarks to others nationwide to be lit during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. Teal is the official color of ovarian cancer awareness.
Greer is a survivor of ovarian cancer and the executive director of Charlene’s Light: A Foundation for Ovarian Cancer. She named it after her friend, Charlene Postigo, who died of the disease.
For the color-challenged, teal is described by the American Heritage Dictionary as “a moderate or dark bluish green to greenish blue.”
