Two of Duluth's most iconic structures, the Aerial Lift Bridge and Enger Tower, were bathed in teal light on Saturday night. The Duluth News Tribune reports that the signature color was part of the city's recognition of Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.

Duluth native Kristin Greer, an ovarian cancer survivor who is the executive director of Charlene's Light, an ovarian cancer foundation, began contacting city and federal officials in January in her effort to add the Duluth landmarks to others nationwide that will be lit in teal during September.

The Northland News Center said that Mayor Don Ness declared September 13th as Ovarian Cancer Awareness Day in the city.
