KENNEWICK, Wash.-- October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and the color pink has been popping up everywhere.
Firefighters with both Richland and Kennewick Fire Departments are sporting some new uniforms this week, pink cancer awareness shirts. The goal is simple; promote awareness of the deadly disease.
But firefighters don't want to be the only ones wearing these shirts; they want to get the community involved.
"We've received interest from other people, spouses of firefighters, employees of the hospital, of our dispatch center, wanting to get in on it. Wanting to buy shirts and show support," says Kennewick firefighter Andy Finley. "A great response from a lot of these other groups and a lot of support. It's been a neat deal."
You can order your own pink fire department T-shirts. They're fifteen dollars, and all funds raised will be donated to help find a cure.
To do so you can contact Andy Finley. He is the President of Kennewick Firefighters Local 1296 Union.
