Landmark Lightings from Coast to Coast for #NEDAwareness Week

You are here

From the famed Empire State Building in the east to Los Angeles International Airport’s stylish, 100-foot, glass pylons in the west, 67 iconic landmarks in cities across the country will once again be 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 unites dozens of U.S. cities, including your community, in observation of the 30th annual National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (#NEDAwareness Week), Feb. 26 - Mar. 4.  

If you would like to volunteer to attend a lighting in your area, and would be willing to take a picture to send to us so we can track all lightings via social media, please fill out this quick survey. By taking a few moments to let us know that you are interested, we can determine which landmarks will have confirmed volunteer photographers. 

If you don’t see your community represented, please fill out the survey if you are interested in volunteering should a landmark in your city and state agree to participate in the campaign.
