Arizona Firefighters Ride In The Breast-Mobile

Firefighters from Glendale, Arizona, have discovered yet another way to make women swoon by supporting a cause closest to their heart: breast cancer. Dubbed “The Guardians of the Ribbon” the pink-clad troupe of police officers and firefighters travel across country on the Pink Ribbon Tour, intent on raising breast cancer awareness. Led by Dave Graybill, a firefighter for Glendale, AZ since 1990, the Guardians of the Ribbon began with the simple intent of showing support for women, and breast cancer survivors, everywhere. Touring the U.S. in their firetruck festooned with pink ribbons, last month the Guardians visited 22 states, collecting a staggering 7,000 signatures on their truck from breast cancer survivors and supporters. Inspiring other departments to get involved, the Guardians encourage local fire company’s to don pink on October 25th, 26th, and 27th. Explained Graybill, “We’re asking all men out there whether you have been affected by cancer or not to take a stand and support the women in your communities.”

    THanks so much for getting the word out about the Pink Ribbon Tour,
    the crew is working very hard to raise breast cancer awareness and get fire and police involved!
    Care Enough to Wear Pink on the 25th 26th and 27th of October!
