CLEVELAND — Several Cleveland landmarks went teal on Thursday to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s Awareness Month as part of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America’s Light the World in Teal program.
The annual program, held in November, aims to show support for the millions of people affected by the disease.
Cleveland landmarks joined more than 290 other sites worldwide in “going teal” for Alzheimer’s awareness on Nov. 5. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Terminal Tower, Cleveland City Hall, and University East Building are some of the buildings that went teal.
More than 5.8 million Americans, including 220,000 Ohio residents, are living with Alzheimer’s disease.
The public can participate in raising awareness for Alzheimer’s by “going teal” and using the hashtag on #AFALightTheWorldInTeal
