For the second consecutive year, Turlock firefighters will dawn pink t-shirts throughout the month of October to raise support for breast cancer research and Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The now-annual breast cancer awareness effort started a year ago, surpassing expectations in its first year. Through the sale of t-shirts, Turlock firefighters raised $18,000 for an Emanuel Medical Center breast cancer endowment in just over a month.
The attractive 2013 pink t-shirts cost $15 with no tax. This year, they are available for pre-order online at Turlock Firefighter Local #2434 web site, https://squareup.com/market/turlock-firefighters-2434.
Shirts can also be purchased at the Emanuel Medical Center Gift Shop from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, located at 825 Delbon Ave, Turlock.
Group orders are available through Sept. 30.
All funds raised will benefit the Bill & Elsie Ahlem Cancer Endowment, a permanent fund at Emanuel Medical Center that expands cancer services, research and prevention and education programs in the community.
