The Baltimore Ravens have done something symbolic to honor healthcare professionals in Maryland.
The Ravens lit up M&T Bank Stadium in red, white and blue.
“Stronger together,” the Ravens wrote on Twitter.

Usually, it’s lit up in purple. The Ravens appear to have made the color change earlier in the week.

The Ravens have tried to help in other ways too. The team and owner Steve Bisciotti (through The Stephen and Renee Bisciotti Foundation) donated $1 million to combat the coronavirus outbreak on March 20.
“We want to help those in our community who are most affected by the COVID-19 crisis,” Ravens President Dick Cass stated in a release. “We chose to donate through these four organizations because we are confident they will apply our funds quickly and directly to people in need.
“We have worked closely with each of these organizations, and the life-altering work being done by them is incredible. We salute their dedication and the manner in which they continue to inspire and serve so many people.”
The money will go to four organizations: the Fund for Educational Excellence, the United Way of Central Maryland, the Baltimore Community Foundation, and the Maryland Food Bank. Each organization will get $250k.
