World Diabetes Day Iconic Landmarks Lighting in Nebraska

World Diabetes Day was created in 1991 by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and the World Health Organization (WHO) in response to growing concerns about the escalating threat of diabetes worldwide, and became an official United Nations Day in 2007.   Celebrated every year on November 14, World Diabetes Day is a global event that unites millions of people in over 160 countries to raise awareness of diabetes.

Last year, the global diabetes community worked together with local champions to light iconic landmarks in blue to mark World Diabetes Day around the world.  A staggering total of 1107 monuments and buildings were lit including the likes of The Alamo, Niagara Falls and the Sears Tower.  A full list can be found on the World Diabetes Day website at www.worlddiabetesday.org.

JDRF Icon Lighting

Iconic monuments and buildings in Nebraska will light their buildings in blue the week of November 9-15, 2009.  JDRF is excited to announce that the Mutual of Omaha Dome, American National Bank, Qwest Center Omaha, and JDRF Office Building will be lit during this week and the Nebraska State Capital will be lit the weekend of November 13th.
