CN Tower lights up in red for 22q

Tuesday, 22nd November 2022 5:30 pm

The CN Tower will lit up in red to raise awareness for 22q on Tuesday, November 22nd, 2022!

We chose November 22nd (“22/11”) as a play on the name of the condition, 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (“22q”). The lighting of the CN Tower was part of the “Luces por el 22q/Lighting the 22q” international awareness movement that began in Spain in 2018. Buildings in Spain, Germany, Belgium, Finland and the city of Philadelphia, United States, were lit up as part of the movement on the 22nd of November in previous years. In 2021, Toronto joined this international awareness movement. We continue to be a national leader in providing care for families through clinics at the Toronto General Hospital and at SickKids Hospital, and in internationally renowned research into adult outcomes and genetics.
