NEW YORK -- More than a dozen landmarks across the U.S. and Canada will light up to promote next week's "Stand Up to Cancer" telethon.
Organizers say the buildings that will be illuminated starting Thursday include Rockefeller Center in New York, Toronto's CN tower and the Wrigley Building in Chicago.
The hour-long cancer fundraiser will air Sept. 5 on 31 U.S. broadcast and cable networks.
It also will air on Canadian networks and will stream live on Hulu and Yahoo in the U.S.
Other landmarks that will light up for the telethon include Houston City Hall, the Parthenon in Nashville, Tennessee, and the Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica Pier in California.
All the lights will be some combination of red, orange, yellow or white.
