TRI-CITIES, Wash. -- The Cable Bridge is going teal in September to raise awareness about ovarian cancer.
A local support group called Ovarian Cancer Together came up with the idea to light the cable bridge teal with colored lights.
Hapo and Kadle Regional Medical Center are donating funds to cover the cost.
The bridge goes teal Thursday at sunset. The public is invited to a short memorial at the Clover Island Inn which starts at 7:45 p.m.
“It will be an evening of cheers and tears when we watch the Cable Bridge turn teal. I appreciate the generous donation from HAPO that will make this happen and additional donations that will provide support and go to research,” said Kay Kerbyson, president and founder of Ovarian Cancer Together. “If we can raise awareness of the symptoms, gain knowledge through research and provide support to those fighting the cancer, then we will increase the number of ovarian cancer survivors.”
The bridge will stay teal through September which is National Ovarian Cancer Month. A total amount raised will be announced at the end of the month.
