Heroes Wear Pink
City of Merced Professional Firefighters at Local 1479 are heroes in our community, but the shirts you've seen all over town with the hot pink lettering "Heroes Wear Pink" are actually about local firefighters throwing the title back to breast cancer patients and survivors. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Merced Firefighters sell t-shirts and coordinate events to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research.
In six years, these heroes have raised over $38,000 benefiting the Mercy/UC Davis Cancer Center here in Merced. Many thanks to all our community heroes fighting for a cure!
