The Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica Pier in California and 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 tomorrow in advance of the hour-long cancer fundraiser airing Sept. 5 on 31 U.S. broadcast and cable networks. It also will stream live on Hulu and Yahoo in the U.S.

The buildings that will be illuminated also include Rockefeller Center in New York, Toronto's CN tower, the Wrigley Building in Chicago, etc. All the lights will be some combination of SU2C’s signature colors: red, orange, yellow or white.

Below is a full list from Stand Up to Cancer' s website of the buildings and landmarks to be lit spanning the continent from east to west:
