Winnipeg city hall lit up with green lights on Thursday night to raise awareness about Lyme Disease.
Supporters showed up despite the rain, including 12-year-old Brooke LePage who was diagnosed with Lyme Disease.
Manitoba has high-risk areas inhabited by disease-carrying blacklegged ticks.
Lyme Disease is the fastest growing infectious disease in Canada.
It can result in debilitating headaches, muscle aches, and fatigue.
The Canadian Lyme Disease Foundation runs the campaign.
Other Canadian city halls and the CN Tower also glowed green in May for Lyme Disease Awareness Month.
