Alabama Firefighters Join Forces With The BCRFA To Fight Breast Cancer

Alabama Firefighters Join Forces with the BCRFA to Fight Breast Cancer

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation of Alabama (BCRFA) and fire departments across the state are teaming up once again for the Pink Ribbon Project t-shirt campaign, raising money for breast cancer research in Alabama.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, participating fire departments will sell limited edition t-shirts to the public ($15 for short sleeve, $20 for long sleeve). Proceeds help fund life-saving breast cancer research in Alabama.

The “Pink Ribbon Project” began in 2010 when a few creative fire departments reached out to the BCRFA about a city-wide fundraising effort to support breast cancer research. Especially important to them was that all proceeds stay in Alabama to help attract the best and brightest researchers to the state and support life-saving research. The project officially launched in 2011. Since then, the shirt designs have changed, but the goal remains the same: to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research across the state. Since 2011, over $525,000 has been raised.

Community members and businesses are encouraged to visit their local participating fire station, purchase a “Pink Ribbon Project” t-shirt, and take a picture with the fire fighters. Tag the BCRFA’s social media (@BCRFAlabama) for a chance to be featured!
