Firefighters Don Pink To Show Cancer Support 10-25-2010

Supporters of breast cancer awareness should be tickled pink over one city’s firefighters’ latest cause.
Firefighters have added a new hue to their uniform to raise awareness for cancer.
On Oct. 25, 26 and 27, Saginaw City firefighters and administrative staff will be sporting pink Saginaw shirts “Supporting the Search for a Cure” in connection with the Fire Cancer Network.
The International Association of Firefighters Local 102 voted to encourage members to support the fight against breast cancer.
The local union bought the shirts for the firefighters and other shirts were purchased for family members.
The proceeds from the shirts go to The Firefighter Cancer Support Network.
In a news release, the department stated that cancer, in one way or another, has touched most if not all its members through family members and friends.
“This is the first year for the effort, but the Fire Department plans to make it an annual event,” said one participating firefighter. “Everyone was happy to wear the shirts for this cause and all are on board.”
