CLEVELAND — Cleveland’s Terminal Tower lit up in bright green lights for a good cause Sunday night.

The Cleveland landmark projected green lights in order to raise awareness for cerebral palsy on Oct. 6, World Cerebral Palsy Day.

Cerebral palsy is a group of disorders that affect a person’s ability to move and to maintain balance and posture.

It is the most common motor disability in childhood, with one in 345 being identified with cerebral palsy, according to estimates from CDC’s Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network.

In most children, the specific cause of cerebral palsy is unknown, the CDC said.

The bright green lights were intended to show solidarity with the 17 million people around the world living with cerebral palsy.
