Pink Heals Tour Comes to SwedishAmerican Hospital July 27
July 17, 2013
Since 2007, the Pink Heals Tour has been bringing its pink fire trucks to communities from coast to coast. Its goal is to raise cancer awareness and to honor and support those who are battling cancer.
The 2013 Pink Heals Tour will make its only stop in Rockford at SwedishAmerican from 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM on Saturday, July 27. The pink fire truck, along with firefighters dressed in pink, will be located on the east side of SwedishAmerican Hospital campus in front of Camelot Tower, 1415 East State Street.
Show your support and sign the pink fire truck. People who have signed the truck are the inspiration for our city to come out and honor the women who have fought this battle and be inspired to make a difference in our community.
