Cable Bridge in Tri-Cities Decked Out in Teal Lights

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Drivers may have noticed the Blue Bridge isn't the only bridge showing a little color.

The group, Ovarian Cancer Together, lit up the Cable Bridge in teal lights Thursday night in honor of National Ovarian Cancer Month.     

This is the first time something like this has been done on a bridge in Washington State.

Organizers say two out of every three women diagnosed with ovarian cancer will die from the disease.

They hope the teal lights will help put the spotlight on awareness.  

"If they have that image in their head and they remember the symptoms than hopefully we can get anyone who is diagnosed with ovarian cancer diagnosed earlier," said Kay Kerbyson of Ovarian Cancer Together.

The cable bridge will become the teal bridge during the month of September.

But the group isn't stopping there.

They will also be "tealing" the Dust Devils Stadium, Kennewick Avenue, Jon Dam Plaza and other popular locations throughout the month.
