Crazy Horse To Shine Blue For Diabetes Prevention

November 13, 2012, 5:25 AM

Crazy Horse To Shine Blue For Diabetes Prevention
CUSTER, SD -

Visitors to Crazy Horse Memorial in the Black Hills of South Dakota will see an unusual sight Wednesday: the large mountain carving will be bathed in blue light.

The idea is to bring awareness to diabetes prevention efforts. The Crazy Horse Memorial is joining 400 other landmarks all over the world in a special night lighting ceremony to promote World Diabetes Day, which is Wednesday. Blue signifies the sky shared by all people and the unified response to the diabetes threat.

The large carving will be illuminated from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. local time. A similar lighting event is planned in Sioux Falls at Falls Park from 5 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. local time.

Prevention information will also be available at locations throughout the state on Tuesday.

This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:
The Associated Press corrected an earlier version of the story that had stated World Diabetes Day was on Tuesday. It is on Wednesday, November 14, 2012.
