AMERICAN Cast Iron Pipe Company is glowing teal in September as part of a state-wide awareness initiative called “A State of Teal.” The purpose of the initiative is to bring awareness to gynecologic cancers. This effort was established four years ago, and it is a collaborative effort by the CanSurvive GYN CancerSupport Group, the Laura Crandall Brown Ovarian Cancer Foundation and the Norma Livingston Ovarian Cancer Foundation.
The front of AMERICAN will be lit in teal-colored lights at night until the end of the month. Other companies and organizations participating across Birmingham and the state include the Alabama State Capitol, the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Alabama Power, Birmingham Barons and Regions Field, Huntsville Hospital and the Alabama Fire College in Tuscaloosa.
