The 2014 Pink Heals Fire Truck Tour returned to Carver Ranches Child Care Center, bringing its “Care Enough to Wear Pink” message to students, parents, and community members.
Carver Ranches Child Care Center received tremendous community support for its Second Annual Pink Heals Campaign. Parents, teachers and students from the Boys & Girls Club, Oxford Academy, and local churches, were among those who participate. Ms. Helen Hinton of the Broward County Family Success Center, her staff members and I also participated in the campaign.
The Carver Ranches Child Care Center partnered with Broward County Chapter of Charmettes, Inc. and Amanda’s House, Inc. to promote an awareness of preventative measures including risk factors and protective factors. The group also recognized local cancer survivors and their families.
Visitors signed the Pink Fire Truck, tied pink ribbons on the fences, and created a “Memory” tree in honor of survivors and in memory of those who’ve lost their lives to some form of cancer. Donations will benefit the Charmettes’ Ancillary Care Program.
The Pink Heals tour travels across the United States to support women and encourage men to join the fight against breast cancer. Dave Graybill, former professional baseball player and founder says, “Our goal is to help raise awareness and to increase donations for local charities that contribute to the fight against breast cancer.”
Hats off to Carver’s Board of Directors and Brittney McDonald for spearheading a successful event!
