Fire Girls to host Pink Fire Truck Dedication

VERO BEACH — The Fire Girls of Indian River County invite you to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month by joining them at the dedication ceremony of the “We Care to Wear Pink” Pink Fire Truck. Join them at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 1 at Station 2 located at the eastern end of the Barber Bridge in Vero Beach.

Through the generous donation and hard work of FireHouse Garage of Sebastian, the Fire Girls will proudly have a PINK fire truck to help them spread support and awareness for Breast Cancer. Refreshments will be served immediately following.

In March 2011, the Fire Girls of Indian River County brought the “We Care to Wear Pink” campaign to Indian River County to support Breast Cancer Awareness. The Fire Girls are the wives of firefighters and employees of the fire dept. who decided it was time to make a difference in our community.

The Fire Girls are an affiliate of the Vero Beach Fire Fighters Association (501C4) and have made it their mission to turn Indian River County PINK! In March, they launched their campaign selling pink t-shirts and bracelets, selling almost 1,000 t-shirts to date and in May hosted the “We Care To Wear Pink” ladies luncheon and fashion show at Costa d’ Este Hotel. That event raised $4,000 for breast cancer awareness and support.

The Fire Girls are proud sponsors of this year’s American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk taking place on Saturday, Oct. 15 at 8:30 am at Sebastian River Medical Center.
