Firefighters throughout Rhode Island having been wearing pink shirts while on duty to support the women of RI with ALL types of cancer.
Last year, the RI State Association of Fire Fighters and the RI Association of Fire Chiefs adopted the “Cares Enough to Wear Pink” campaign that promotes selflessly put women first in the battle against cancer.
The shirts were purchased by each individual firefighter and 100 percent of the proceeds from the shirt sales will be donated to cancer organizations in Rhode Island.
Firefighters from the Coventry Fire District's Anthony station donned the pink shirts on Tuesday and Central Coventry firefighters will be sporting their theirs at the 240 Arnold Rd. station from 3:45-5 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27 for anyone who would like to see the pink in action!

"We wear pink, not because it is the color of a disease, but because it is 'her' color. We wear her color to let her know we CARE!"
