More than 130 iconic buildings and landmarks across the United States and Canada will be illuminated in a show of support for the sixth biennial Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) “roadblock” telecast airing on Friday, Sept. 7. Of those, five buildings are located in Los Angeles County and will light up in a combination of SU2C’s signature colors: orange, red, yellow, gray or white.
Stand Up To Cancer is commemorating 10 years of raising awareness and funds for groundbreaking cancer research that is saving lives now.
“We are honored to have our ten years of impact recognized by so many iconic landmarks across the U.S. and Canada,” said Sung Poblete, president and CEO of Stand Up To Cancer. “Illuminating buildings in SU2C’s signature colors across both countries brilliantly symbolizes our emphasis on collaboration and teamwork in SU2C’s life-saving research.”
Bradley Cooper, Academy Award®-nominated actor, will return as co-executive producer of the telecast along with the renowned live-event producing team Done + Dusted, working again with the Stand Up To Cancer production team, after a successful partnership for the 2016 show.
Other stars joining the telecast include Jennifer Garner, Ed Helms, Ken Jeong, Matthew McConaughey, Trevor Noah, Dak Prescott, Keith Urban, and Reese Witherspoon.
The telecast will broadcast live from The Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, CA. As in years past, ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC, along with American Heroes Channel, AT&T AUDIENCE Network, Bloomberg TV, Bravo, among many others, are donating one hour of simultaneous commercial-free primetime for the telecast, with additional networks to be announced.
