NEW YORK (November 7, 2019) — More than 330 landmarks around the world will light up teal today to raise Alzheimer’s awareness through the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America’s (AFA) Light the World in Teal program.
The annual program, held in November for Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, aims to literally shine a spotlight on Alzheimer’s disease and show support for the millions of people affected by it. Teal is AFA’s Alzheimer’s awareness color.
“From iconic landmarks to small buildings, every site that ‘goes teal’ is highlighting the issue of Alzheimer’s disease and showing support for the 50 million people worldwide living with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia,” said Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr., AFA’s President and CEO. “We thank each and every one of them for helping to bring Alzheimer’s awareness to the forefront and inspiring others to join the fight against this disease.”
