A Special Thank You to Our #NEDAwareness Week Landmark Lighting Partners

NEDA Staff

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 70 iconic landmarks in dozens of cities were lit 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 united dozens of U.S. cities in observation of the 30th annual National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (#NEDAwareness Week), Feb. 26 - Mar. 4. This wouldn't have been possible without the help of our dedicated volunteer landmark photographers, as well as the Empire State Building and other landmarks across the country. 

Check out our landmark lighting Facebook album to see the photographs taken by our amazing volunteers. And for a full list of the landmarks that were lit this past NEDAwareness Week, keep reading!
