Real Men Wear Pink

As the saying goes real men wear pink and that's exactly what the men over at the Beckley Fire Department are doing for breast cancer awareness.

Every Friday fire fighters are required to wear special pink shirts as part of their uniforms. The shirts are also on sale to the public for $15 and the money raised will go to the American Cancer Society. This is the first year the department has done this and they know it is for a good reason.

"Cancer touches a lot of people. My father passed away from cancer. We just recently lost a firefighter here. He passed away from cancer. We're doing it to raise awareness." Said fire fighter Joe Coughlin.

If you would like to purchase a shirt all you have to do is call the Beckley Fire Department.
