Pink Heals — a worldwide organization of traveling pink fire trucks bringing awareness to cancer — has seen impressive growth in just seven years. And according to its founder, that’s just the beginning.Mary Kay Wesnitzer, right, signs her name on the pink fire truck as Marcus Koistinen, left, of Sedona Fire District, and Melinda Oglesbee wait to sign on Wednesday, June 18, during the first stop of the national tour of the pink fire trucks. The tour supports cancer research and victim care through other charities. The fleet currently has 150 trucks.


“We’re killing it out there,” founder Dave Graybill said. “We currently have 150 trucks but by 2017 or 2018, we hope to have 500, making us the world’s largest fire department.”

According to the organization’s mission statement, “We drive pink fire trucks and pink police cars across America bringing the ‘Cares Enough to Wear Pink’ and Pink Heals movement to a city near you. We simply provide a program for your community leaders to adopt, helping them fundraise for people rather than causes. We focus our labor of love on the women of this country and wage war on anything that may harm her or her family.”
