One of Singapore’s most iconic landmarks will be lighted up on 21 September 2021 as a show of solidarity for the dementia community. You’re invited to join us!

 

To commemorate and champion the dementia cause in Singapore, the dome of the National Stadium will be illuminated in purple and yellow on the evening of 21 September 2021 to mark World Alzheimer’s Day. Purple is the symbolic colour universally associated with dementia, while yellow represents positivity and contrast against the negative dementia stigma.

The National Stadium light-up is part of Dementia Singapore’s advocacy efforts to raise awareness for the condition and the people impacted by it – people living with dementia, caregivers and family members, healthcare professionals, and community care workers – during the month of September, which is globally commemorated as World Alzheimer’s Month.

“We are grateful to Singapore Sports Hub for championing the dementia cause by offering such an iconic national monument to support our advocacy efforts. This World Alzheimer’s Day, we dedicate the historic illumination of the National Stadium in purple and yellow to the dementia community, and hope to raise the awareness of the condition far and wide among the wider population,” said Dementia Singapore CEO, Mr Jason Foo.

You are invited to share your snaps of the lighted-up National Stadium dome with Dementia Singapore on social media, by tagging our Facebook and Instagram pages, @DementiaSingapore and @sgsportshub, and using the hashtag #ShineForDementia and #MySgSportsHub.
