Guardians of The Ribbon, dressed in pink fire suits, will drive pink fire trucks across the country every year to spread our awareness campaign supporting all women in their fight against cancer. We inspire cities and empower leaders to support the women of their communities to Care Enough to Wear Pink. The Guardians bring the tour to help raise money and awareness for the non-profit entities that help women in their City and State. In addition, this non-profit supports and helps other non-profit programs raise money by bringing the pink fire trucks to various fund raisers to assist in the efforts at no charge to the organization. As Guardians of The Ribbon, are goal is to spread the “Cares Enough to Wear Pink” campaign until all are in pink shirts. Why? Because Pink Heals!
Our Mission As fire fighters and police officers, we wear a blue shirt 365 days a year. Our mission is to lose the blue and don the pink in honor of women for 3 days in October. We have designated these three days each year, October 25th, 26th and 27th, for “The Cares Enough to Wear Pink” campaign. Women represent a large percentage of the population, and what an impact it will have for all women to see the support in pink. We hope that our Fire and Police Chiefs and other leaders of this Country see the color pink, not just as a benefit for breast cancer, but as a way to support all women in their fight against all cancers.
The sale of the Guardians logo shirts and the donations we receive directly will be used by the Pink Heals Northern Illinois for gas, maintenance on the fire truck, as well as food and lodging for the tour. Guardians of The Ribbon request that all other fundraising activities and the monies raised be targeted to stay in those specific communities in which the events occur.
These men honor those who can no longer fight,
stand with those who can fight and inspire those who watch.
This mission is about Men Supporting Women in the fight against cancer.
