Charity Spotlight: Anne Arundel County Firefighters Donate $10,000 to Susan G. Komen Foundation

We here at the Pink Event love firefighters! And we highlighted back in October that Anne Arundel County firefighters were stepping up their heroism by wearing specially designed T-shirts promoting breast cancer awareness while on duty.

Late Wednesday morning, those firefighters from local 1563 made a full circle by donating $10,000 from shirt sales and other efforts to the Susan G. Komen Foundation (and its Maryland Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®), as noted by WMAR ABC-2.  

"Thank you to firefighters in Anne Arundel County," Komen Maryland exclaimed on its Facebook page. The nonprofit, headquartered in Towson, is one of two charities involved with The Pink Event. Komen Maryland will equally receive 65 percent of The Pink Event's ticket sales with the House of Ruth Maryland.

Komen Maryland, a leader for breast cancer awareness efforts in the state, this year has nearly $2.5 million to 29 programs across the state, providing education, screening, treatments and support services to women, men and families with breast cancer.
