Throughout October, affiliates across the United States and Canada promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month in their communities, and wearing pink T-shirts – while raising money for breast cancer research – has become a signature feature of these campaigns.

To recognize these efforts, the IAFF conducts an annual Best Pink T-Shirt Design Contest open to all affiliates. We encourage you to submit your T-shirt designs now through Friday, October 30.

Beginning November 2, you can vote for your favorite design. Voting ends November 9. The winning affiliate receives a free registration to the next Redmond Health and Safety Symposium/Barbera EMS Conference.

In addition, our community outreach toolkit provides tools and resources to help in your efforts to support this worthy cause, including infographics to share on social media.

We also encourage you to send your videos, photos and news about your pink campaigns to [email protected] so we can share these on our IAFF social media (#IAFFinPINK).
