Duluth's Aerial Lift Bridge and Enger Tower were bathed in teal light on Saturday night in recognition of Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.
As a steady rain fell, many people stopped along Harbor Drive behind the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center to take a look.
Duluth native Kristine Greer started contacting officials in January in her effort to add the Duluth landmarks to others nationwide to be lit during September, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported. Teal is the official color of ovarian cancer awareness.
Greer is a survivor of ovarian cancer and the executive director of Charlene's Light: A Foundation for Ovarian Cancer. She named it after her friend, Charlene Postigo, who died of the disease.
