Hoover Dam Illuminated

Hoover Dam “Lit Up” Turquoise

To honor National Women’s Lung Health, the American Lung Association’s LUNG FORCE collaborated with partners to illuminate popular landmarks, including Hoover Dam, the color turquoise to celebrate the LUNG FORCE Turquoise Takeover. Supported by the Bureau of Reclamation, Hoover Dam was “lit up turquoise” on May 8th, just after sunset. The public can see the illumination from 8:30 to 10:30 in the evening at the observation bridge over Hoover Dam  on May 9th through the 11th. “Lung cancer is the leader cancer cause of death of women, and yet only 2 percent of women refer to lung cancer as a primary health concern,” said Kristina Crawford, oAmerican Lung Association Nevada’s executive director. “National Womens Lung Health Week is a excellent opportunity for us to expand awareness about lung cancer and give support for lives touched by the disease. We are very happy to join with Hoover Dam in lighting the dam for the LUNG FORCE Turquoise Takeover and bring efforts to bear to force and end to lung cancer.”
