Fire fighters wear pink and sell t-shirts for breast cancer awareness in October

Members of the Fire Department will wear pink t-shirts instead of their navy blue uniform

Campbell River’s Fire Rescue crews are wearing pink in October to promote breast cancer awareness – and you can support the cause by buying a pink T-shirt.

Throughout the month, members of the Fire Department will wear pink t-shirts instead of their navy blue uniform to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Purchase a pink fire fighter t-shirt for $20 at the No. 1 Fire Hall (675-13th Avenue). All proceeds from the sale of the t-shirts will go to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Fire fighters exposed to carcinogens and other chemicals on the job are disproportionately diagnosed with breast cancer – one of many cancers linked to the work fire fighters do.
