You recently may have seen Miami- Dade’s “Bravest” wearing pink. The Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department (MDFR) highlighted Breast Cancer Awareness Month by having its members wear “pink.”
MDFR firefighter-paramedics wore pink uniform shirts from Sept. 27 through Oct. 11 to provide support and awareness of breast cancer related issues. This yearly initiative gave MDFR’s members yet another way to be part of the community they serve and the issues that are important to it.
MDFR’s “These Boots Are Made For Walking” team is headlining the fundraising efforts, which is looking to raise $5,000 for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign. The team participated in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on Saturday, Oct. 11, at Marlins Park.
