Firefighters raise nearly $3,000 for breast cancer fund

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - Throughout the month of October, Cedar Rapids firefighters participated in a fundraising campaign to support breast cancer survivors and bring about awareness.

The firefighters raised just over $2,950 for Mercy Medical Center's Especially for You fund by wearing pink T-shirts or navy blue T-shirts with a pink ribbon while on duty.

The shirts were designed by International Association of Fire Fighters Local #11 specifically for the Especially for You Fund.

The fire crews bought their own t-shirts, and they were sold to the public with all proceeds going to the cancer fund.

The pink shirts are still available on the Cedar Rapids Firefighter's
