The Turlock Firefighters, Local #2434 are seeking nominations for a “Pink Helmet” award that will be presented at Emanuel Cancer Center’s annual “Women’s Cancer Awareness Night Out.”
The award is meant to educate women about the importance of early detection of breast, ovarian, and cervical cancer and how it can be life-saving.
On Oct. 7, at ECC’s event, Turlock Firefighters will announce the recipient of the Pink Helmet. The winner will be used on the Turlock Firefighters website, brochures, publications, posters, etc. to educate the community for approximately 24 to 36 months.
According to the Turlock Firefighters, the nominees should “represent the characteristics of a firefighter, i.e. compassion, bravery, honesty, commitment and courage. This person can be a cancer survivor, advocate, caregiver, or anyone touched by cancer in some way.”
The deadline to submit a nomination is Sept. 22 at midnight. Turlock Firefighters ask nominators use “Pink Helmet” as the subject line for the entry email.
Nominees do not need to be from Turlock, but must live in either Stanislaus or Merced County.
