Kris Greer, a Duluth native, comes back for Light Duluth Teal each year. "We are determined to fund an early detection test, better treatment, and ultimately, a cure."

She was diagnosed at age 41. As a survivor of late-stage cancer, she's made it her mission to spread hope and awareness.

Light Duluth Teal is September 6-8th. It starts on Friday evening, when the lift bridge lights up in teal. "We remember those women who've lost their lives to this difficult cancer. As well as support those who are dealing with it right now," Greer explained.

Then the gala dinner is the next night, Saturday, at the DECC. The keynote speaker is Dr. Amanika Kumar, a Gynecologist-Oncologist from Mayo Clinic.

And on Sunday, the 8th, is the Elizabeth Busche Memorial golf scramble. It's named in honor of the 19-year-old Duluth woman who died from ovarian cancer.

You can still sign up!

"Please join us. It's a very meaningful event. It's so heartwaming to see that lift bridge shining teal, and raising awareness, and saving lives," Greer added.
