Wichita Falls, TX - Wednesday the Wichita Falls Fire Department kicked off its month long T-shirt campaign. Encouraging you to think pink. It's all a part of their month long campaign to raise money and bring awareness about Breast Cancer.
Throughout the month of October Wichita Falls firefighters will be going pink, wearing and selling T-shirts to raise money for two local charities, the Susan G. Komen Foundation Wichita Falls and the American Cancer Society.
