Capitol dome, Governor's Mansion to shine purple

The Missouri state Capitol dome and Missouri Governor's Mansion will shine purple Tuesday in recognition of Alzheimer's Awareness Day.

The dome and Mansion will light up at sunset and remain lit through sunrise Wednesday.

The color purple is the signature color of the Alzheimer's Association. Combining the calmness of blue and the passion of red, purple represents the uncompromising strength of the Alzheimer's Association and its supporters, according to a news release from Gov. Mike Parson's office.

In coordination with the lighting, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services will host a department walk in Jefferson City from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. today in recognition of Alzheimer's Awareness Day. There will also be a Walk to End Alzheimer's on Sunday in Jefferson City.

There are 210,000 people age 65 and older living with Alzheimer's in Missouri, according to DHSS.
