Glow Orange to Cure Cancer


We’re excited for our Glow Orange to Cure Cancer campaign this week! May is National Cancer Research Month and the perfect time to highlight the lifesaving work happening here at Fred Hutch. The 520 Bridge, Columbia Tower, The Great Wheel and many other buildings and landmarks are glowing Obliteride orange through May 13.

The Seattle Great Wheel will kick off the week with an orange light show from 6-10 p.m. tonight and will glow orange for Obliteride again Friday night. If you get a chance, check out the Seattle skyline at night this week, May 7-13 and be proud you are part of Obliteride. Together, we’ve raised more than $12 million for Fred Hutch since 2013.

Join us in celebrating Glow Orange! Replace your front porch light with an orange bulb, put up an Obliteride yard sign, change your profile picture to Obliteride, anything to help spread the word about Obliteride and the groundbreaking research happening at Fred Hutch, right here in Seattle.
