Over 100 Buildings Will Light Up in Blue & Green for #NEDAwareness Week

Special Thanks to the Empire State Building & All of Our Building Partners!

From the famed Empire State Building in the east to Los Angeles International Airport's stylish, 100-foot, glass pylons in the west, more than 100 iconic landmarks in dozens of cities and over 40 states will light up in the signature blue and green colors of the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) to put a spotlight on the seriousness of eating disorders.

The coast-to-coast effort will unite dozens of U.S. cities in observation of the 32nd annual National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (#NEDAwareness Week), Feb. 25 - Mar. 3, 2019.
