Pasadena Firefighters Are in the Pink!

Pasadena firefighters participated in a photo opportunity in front of the Rose Bowl Stadium this morning, followed by a walk around the 3.3-mile Rose Bowl Loop.

They traded their Pasadena Fire Department uniform shirts for pink t-shirts to help raise awareness of breast cancer, women's cancer research and the benefits of exercise for cancer prevention.

Pasadena City Councilman Victor Gordo and his field representative Vannia De La Cuba donned the pink shirts as well!

Victor was among the speakers at the event...

And Vannia did an on-camera interview with Azteca TV (channel 26).

Purchase your very own t-shirt for just $20 at Fire Station 33, 515 N. Lake Ave., or at All proceeds will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

They even come in children's sizes, although apparently not small enough for Pasadena's youngest future firefighter!

I notice they're fund-raising for the cause at the Von's at Orange Grove and Fair Oaks as well.
