Breast Cancer Awareness Month-Tough Men Wear Pink

Firefighters with the City of Southlake’s Department of Public Safety division are wearing pink T-shirts throughout the month of October to support Breast Cancer Awareness. The Fire Services division is helping to raise awareness and selling pink T-shirts to the public to help raise funds for research for the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Breast Cancer is still the number one cause of death in women and bringing awareness is vitally important.  The disease has touched many families who have sisters, mothers, aunts or grandmothers who are currently battling the disease or who are breast cancer survivors.  “As firefighters and public servants who are committed to saving lives and helping others this is another way that we can help by participating in a very worthwhile cause. We want to do our part to help raise awareness,” said Fire Chief Mike Starr.

This is the third year for Southlake firefighters to wear pink T-shirts in support of breast cancer awareness.  And again, all of the profits from the sales of the pink T-shirts will go directly to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.  The costs of the T-shirts are from $12 to $15 and they are available in short and long sleeve styles.

If you would like to help support Breast Cancer Awareness by purchasing a pink T-shirt you are invited to come out to our National Night Out event Tuesday, October 04, 2011 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Southlake Town Square. You can also purchase a T-shirt from any Southlake firefighter or simply fill out an order form and include your check, money order or cash and mail it to Southlake Fire Services Attn: Renni Burt 2100 West Southlake Blvd., Southlake, TX 76092.  (Payment should be made out to the City of Southlake) Order form
