The pylons at the entrance to Los Angeles International Airport are glowing red from November 4-10 in recognition of Diabetes Awareness Month.

The official awareness day is November 14th.

Councilmember Bill Rosendahl and his colleague Councilman Paul Koretz recently raised awareness  about their diabetes and gave their advice for healthier living.

“Diet and exercise are key,” said Rosendahl.

Rosendahl also urged parents to keep their kids away from sugar and eat wholesome, quality food.


Rosendahl says he was diagnosed with diabetes almost 10 years ago.

The pylons at LAX are a  series of 100-foot-high colorfully lit pylons and 32-foot-high letters spelling out “LAX.” The entrance has become a landmark and symbolic gateway at the airport since their commemoration on August 8, 2000. (source)
