The Light the World in Teal program, held by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, aims to shine a light on the disease and garner support for the millions affected by it.
“It’s wonderful to see Virginia Beach’s Clark Nexsen Building helping to raise Alzheimer’s awareness,” said Charles J. Fuschillo Jr., AFA’s President and Chief Executive Officer, in a news release. “By ‘Going Teal,’ this site is literally highlighting the issue of Alzheimer’s and the need to continue doing more for the 5 million Americans currently living with it. We thank them for supporting this program and all those affected by Alzheimer’s disease.”
Additionally, 47 sites around the world including in Canada, China, Ireland, New Zealand, Qatar, Singapore and the United Kingdom will participate in the event’s fourth year of teal illumination.
