LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Things are looking pink at the John T. Myers Pedestrian Bridge in Tippecanoe County.
It was the annual bridge-lighting ceremony in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an event is organized by the YWCA Women's Cancer Program Tuesday evening.
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
City officials and survivors spoke about the importance of raising awareness for the disease and for celebrating the women affected by it.
"This is just a wonderful way to honor the women in our community who are battling breast cancer and also honor those women who did not win that war," said YWCA Executive Director Debi DeBruyn.
The lights on the bridge weren't the only things getting the pink treatment.
There was also a change in hue for the water in the fountains both on the bridge at at Riehle Plaza.
A Lafayette man charged with multiple bank robberies in Tippecanoe and Clinton Counties pleads guilty to a series of bank robberies in Illinois.
The drop in temperatures brings the potential for health dangers, such as hypothermia and frost bite. The bitter temperatures can pose a threat for children, adults and pets.
As it stands Wednesday, there will be no FEMA aid for tornado survivors in Howard County.
