The Mishicot Ambulance and Fire Department have joined forces to bring the Pink Heals movement to Manitowoc County. We started in February 2012. We are a chapter of a national organization that has been in existence for several years. Pink Heals is a movement created by Dave Graybill, who is a retired firefighter from the city of Glendale, AZ Fire Department.
Everyone who belongs to Pink Heals volunteers their time which means all the money we raise goes to help people. Each chapter raises its own money and that money stays in the chapter’s area. We have been incorporated and are now a non-profit group.
We raise money to help people fighting cancer. Across the United States and Canada, there are currently more than 150 Pink Fire Trucks. These Pink Fire Trucks are named after women and children who are battling cancer or who have lost their fight to cancer. The fire trucks are signed by anyone who has been touched by cancer. The color Pink represents women, not a disease!
Pink Heals Manitowoc County Mission Statement…
“Our mission is to financially and emotionally assist women, men, and children battling any type of cancer in Manitowoc County.”
Learn About Pink Heals
The Pink Heals Movement is not just about the fight against breast cancer, it’s the fight against all cancers that women, men, and children battle against! Our program is much more profound as it is something everyone can wrap their arms around whether you’ve had cancer or not.
Pink Heals is funded by 100% of donations raised at events. It is locally and nationally that we are assisted. Locally by the events that Pink Heals Manitowoc County puts on and nationally by way of our national chapter bringing their tour to our towns. In this way, we are able to give our art for free and create Immediate Care Funds for every stop on Tour! Tour drivers will commit to driving pink fire trucks and other pink vehicles across America. The Pink Heals Tour visits hundreds of communities, driving thousands of miles and spreading the Pink Heals message.
We bring a mission of love and hope by sharing stories of those who have won and lost their battles, inspiring people to get involved! This selfless effort by the “Guardians” who drive these vehicles along with the thousands of people who have signed the pink vehicles are the inspiration for your city to come out and honor those who have fought this battle. This is about doing what is right for the very people we commit to and serve.
