The Austonian’s Crown Goes Blue Tonight for World Diabetes Day

In support of World Diabetes Day, The Austonian is participating in the “Monumental Challenge” campaign, an initiative to light iconic landmarks and buildings around the world blue as beacons of hope to the millions of people living with diabetes.

The Austonian will change the LED “smile” on the building’s crown blue tonight (November 14th). The Austonian joins the Alamo, The Empire State Building and other iconic landmarks in countries including Iran, Peru, Russia, Slovenia and Sudan.

World Diabetes Day was introduced in 1991 by the World Health Organization and the International Diabetes Federation in response to the rise of diabetes around the world. Learn more about World Diabetes Day at www.wddusa.org
