The Zakim Bridge.

Buildings and landmarks across the country are lighting up in blue in honor of Pain Awareness Month as part of U.S. Pain’s “Shine Blue for Pain” initiative. Blue is the designated color for pain awareness.

“We are so grateful to all of the volunteers who helped reach out to these locations and request their participation,” says Nicole Hemmenway, Interim CEO of U.S. Pain Foundation. “Special thanks goes to our dedicated team member, Michele Rice, who coordinated everyone’s efforts and reached out to a number of landmarks.”

This year, 40 locations are participating, ranging from the Freedom Tower in Miami, FL, to the state capitol building in Harrisburg, PA, to the Zakim Bridge in Boston, MA. While the official date for Shine Blue for Pain was Sept. 13, some locations lit up on multiple days or will light up later in the month.
