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 fire fighter 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!
