CRAZY HORSE, S.D. – Crazy Horse Memorial will light the Mountain blue to support World Diabetes Day on Monday, November 14. The lighting will begin in the early evening and will remain lit until 7 p.m. The Memorial will be closed after 5 p.m., but the public is invited to drive into the parking lot to view the lighting and to take pictures.

World Diabetes Day was created in 1991 by the International Diabetes Federation and the World Health Organization in response to growing concerns about the escalating health threat posed by diabetes. WDD became an official United Nations Day in 2006 with the passage of United Nation Resolution 61/225.

WDD is the world’s largest diabetes awareness campaign reaching a global audience of over 1 billion people in more than 160 countries. The campaign draws attention to issues of paramount importance to the diabetes world and keeps diabetes firmly in the public and political spotlight.
