We wear pink to honor all women and their families. We drive pink fire trucks for women against the disease called cancer and support her and her family through this battle. If the men of the community look after their women, the most important people in our community, they will continue to look after us. We wear pink for women and drive pink fire trucks as a symbol of hope. Cancer does not discriminate. Men, women and children are fighting this disease and this symbol of hope will travel to show them that they are not alone. We hope to inspire communities and empower their leaders to support the women of their community and "Care Enough To Wear Pink".
Pink Heals South West Florida, Guardians of the Ribbon, will bring our truck to help raise money and awareness at events for other non-profit organizations that help women and their families. We do this at no charge to the organization. We only ask that all funds remain in the community and do not support corporate entities. While at these events we may sell t-shirts in order to provide fuel and maintenance for the fire trucks, however no one in the Pink Heals South West Florida Chapter receives funds personally and we request that all other donated funds remain in the community.
As firefighters, police officers and business professionals in the community we wear uniforms all year long. Our desire is to lose the blue, the shirts and ties, and wear pink in honor of our women. Three days each year, October 25th, 26th, and 27th are designated "Cares Enough To Wear Pink Day". In addition November 1st is designated as "Pink Heals Day". Join us in the effort to support this mission and encourage your community leaders and businesses to support Pink Heals. Check the events page calendar often to see where to come join us !
