Tower illumination dates for October

The Schmon Tower’s familiar red glow will give way to an array of colour schemes to mark several occasions taking place this month.

On the weekend of Oct. 5 and 6, the tower will be illuminated in pink for breast cancer awareness and to mark the Run for the Cure being held on campus Sunday, Oct. 6. It will also be green on Thursday, Oct. 10 for World Mental Health Day, pink and blue on Tuesday, Oct. 15 for International Wave of Light — Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day and orange on Thursday, Oct. 31 for Halloween.

The tower is lit externally with 48 powerful LED lights which offer a full rainbow of colour options.

Members of the community can request the tower be illuminated in a particular colour for holidays and non-commercial special events.

Interested community members can submit a Brock Tower illumination request and see the full schedule online.
