The Pink Heals Tour made its way to Daytona Beach Monday, after a stop over the weekend at the Deltona Fire Department. Monday morning, members of the Daytona Beach Fire Department met the Pink Heals Tour outside Halifax Hospital in front of the Halifax Health Center for Oncology. The Pink Heals Tour started in 2007 and features firefighters and police officers dressed in pink in support of women in the fight against cancer. Women and their families who have faced or are facing cancer sign the Pink Heals Fire Truck (Karen) and share stories. Giveaways and cancer awareness information was also available at the Halifax event Monday. Pink Heals Firefighters were also scheduled to visit patients at Halifax Hospital, in full pink-colored firefighting gear.
The Pink Heals Tour also sells t-shirts and other clothing promoting their support of female cancer patients and survivors. Their website emphasizes that they “…serve our community by putting people first…. We believe that money raised in our communities, counties and states should remain there, giving us the option to either put it towards research or…to the people that need it most.”
Daytona Beach Fire Department spokesperson Lt. Larry Stoney also noted that Daytona Beach Fire Department members will be wearing pink uniform shirts during the month of October in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
