Pink Heals Tour Rolls Through Solano
July 6, 2011
The famous Pink Heals Tour made a whistlestop in Solano County during its first visit to California in May, promoting awareness of women's cancer.
NorthBay Healthcare was proud to host three pink fire trucks, which spent a day parked outside the NorthBay Cancer Center in Fairfield and then joined NorthBay Healthcare's Fiesta Days Parade entry, May 28.
More than 300 pink-clad NorthBay employees marched behind the trucks, earning the parade's Sweepstakes Award at day's end.
The non-profit Pink Heals Tour crosses the country to raise awareness about women's cancers and raise money to fight for a cure for breast cancer. Along the way, thousands of cancer survivors have signed the trucks.
All Solano county women who have been touched by cancer were invited to add their signatures to the trucks. The funds raised here community have been be donated to the NorthBay Center for Women's Health to fund mammograms for women without health insurance.
