In honor of Stand Up To Cancer‘s sixth live telecast on Friday, September 7, Orlando will join with other cities across North America to light up in a combination of SU2C’s signature colors.

More than 130 iconic buildings and landmarks across the United States and Canada will be illuminated in SU2C’s signature colors: orange, red, yellow, gray or white.

In Orlando, here are the locations where you can spot the SU2C’s colors on Friday night:

  • Amway Center (Downtown) will light up orange
