May 2013: The event actually started on May 17, in Niagara Falls, where green lights illuminated these world-famous falls for Lyme Disease Awareness. People around the world were watching on webcams, sending pictures and screen grabs, and taking part in a world-wide movement to bring awareness about this devastating disease.
More informal information is regularly posted on a blog, if you want to follow along.
