Did your city "light up for rare" on Rare Disease Day?

Landmarks around the world glowed in pink, blue, purple and green in honor of Rare Disease Day, which was Sunday, February  28. Here, we share two: Marburg Castle in Germany and the Tokyo Tower in Japan. In past years, iconic landmarks such as the Empire State Building and the Leaning Tower of Pisa have participated by shining in colored light.
