Gilbert Water Tower Lighting- Orange- in recognition of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) awareness
- Date: 11/04/2019 (all day)
- Location: Water Tower Plaza
Gilbert, Arizona 85233
The Gilbert Water tower will be lit orange in recognition of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) awareness , also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD).
Monday November 4, 2019 for the sixth-annual Color The World Orange™.
Color the World Orange™ is an annual event held the first Monday of November to spread awareness of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), a debilitating nerve condition characterized by continuous, intense, burning pain that is out of proportion to the severity of the original injury.
The fifth-annual Color the World Orange™ in 2018 was the largest yet with 137 buildings, bridges and landmarks around the world lit orange to spread awareness of this poorly understood and incredibly debilitating condition. Among the places that turned orange were Niagara Falls, the 3D Toronto sign, the Superdome in New Orleans and five Billboards in Times Square in New York.
Around the world, buildings and bridges, including Niagara Falls, the Zakim Bridge, the Wells Fargo’s Duke Energy Center in Charlotte North Carolina, the Calgary Tower in Calgary, Canada and the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada are scheduled to be lit orange on November 4 for this year’s Color The World Orange ™. As additional lightings are confirmed, they will be added to the Color The World Orange™ social media pages as well as our website: www.colortheworldorange.com
