Duluth to be lit in shades of teal for ovarian cancer awareness
It’s almost time to Light Duluth Teal! And the Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance is adding splashes of teal to Canal Park.
Kris Greer, MOCA’s board chair and ovarian cancer survivor herself, spent time tying teal ribbons on the carriages that take people on horse-drawn rides.
Several Duluth area landmarks including Duluth Entertainment Convention Center (DECC), Enger Tower, Glensheen Mansion, Peace Church, Pier B Resort and Hotel and Radisson Hotel will light up in teal Friday and Saturday evenings as part of MOCA’s Light the Night Campaign, which raises awareness about ovarian cancer throughout Minnesota.
Greer told us it makes a difference, seeing those landmarks in teal. “The women who have been impacted by ovarian cancer or their loved ones, they feel a sense of community and support. It’s very meaningful to them.”
Also, Mayor Emily Larson has issued a mayoral proclamation for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.
