“Kelowna Firefighters will don pink t-shirts for two weeks later this month to show their support for the fight against breast cancer and the upcoming Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s annual CIBC Run For The Cure.
Local firefighters agreed to support the cause after our International Association adopted it as a cause to support and asked its members to participate in the pink-shirt campaign.
In addition to wearing the t-shirts, firefighters will also sell them at the Run For The Cure event on Sept. 30 in City Park in Kelowna for $20 each. 100% of all the proceeds raised will go the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
Larry Holier, President of IAFF 953, the Kelowna Local of the International Association of Fire Fighters, said just like his members do with their Burn Fund and Muscular Dystrophy fund raising campaigns, local firefighters are happy to lend their support to such a worthy cause.
“It’s all about helping in the community.”
