Local and area emergency service groups are participating in the Pink Heals Tour and will be accepting donations for cancer patients from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday through Sunday at Ken's SuperFair Foods and Kessler's Grocery Store.
According to a news release, the Pink Heals Tour was started by a firefighter in Arizona to raise money and awareness for various types of women's cancer. A group of firefighters drive across the country in pink fire trucks, wearing pink fire gear and helping cities raise money for their community in the fight against cancer.
All donations will be given to the Conklin Regional Cancer Center in the form of gas cards and gift cards.
Last year, emergency personnel began the process in Aberdeen and surrounding communities by wearing pink T-shirts and bracelets during the fourth week in October. Participating entities included: Aberdeen Fire and Rescue, Aberdeen Police Department, Aberdeen Rural Fire Department, Groton Rescue, Hecla Fire and Rescue, Stratford Fire Department, Columbia Fire Department, Frederick Fire Department, Avera St. Luke's Emergency Department and CareFlight, Brown County Dispatch and Brown County Emergency Management.
Mayor Mike Levsen also signed a proclamation stating that the fourth week in October is Pink Heals Week in Aberdeen.
