Light Up Green for World Mitochondrial Disease Week 2020 Buildings and monuments around the UK will light up green for a week this September, to raise awareness about mitochondrial disease.
Dozens of landmarks, including castles, bridges and towers, are expected to take part in the annual global initiative to mark World Mitochondrial Disease Week (13-19 Sept). Municipal buildings, businesses, pubs, schools, hospitals and private homes are invited to participate.
Last year saw famous sites including Battersea Power Station, Mersey Gateway Bridge, Leeds Castle and Blackpool Tower go #MitoAware by lighting up green. This year’s event is expected to make an even bigger impact, as it coincides with a Coronation Street storyline about a child with mito that has helped put the disease in the national spotlight.
