Clay Township firefighters wear pink for breast cancer awareness


Think Pink are catch words that are pretty popular during October.

And for the 5th year in a row, Clay firefighters are thinking pink and wearing pink to show support for breast cancer awareness.
Every year they sell these shirts and donate the proceeds to fund local organization that  help cancer patients.

They money raised goes to help local patients pay for mammograms, biopsies, and medications.

"The idea was to get guys involved and to have money that stays local because there's a lot of people locally that need help with those bills," said Fire Marshall of Clay Fire Territory Dave Cherrone. "They are never cheap.  Nothing is ever free."

Last year, they raised  over $8,000.00. 
The shirts are available by calling (574) 272 - 2144 or stopping by the station.
They also have a pink truck that delivers care packages to area patients.
