The Battle of the Bravest Muster event will take place on August 28th from 10 am to 8 pm at Soveral Park in East Orange, NJ. The campaign will kick off this year's events with a festive day of family fun firetrucks competition as the Firefighter's Wear Pink Campaign and Firemanthirt.com team up with The American Cancer Society, FIRSTNET by AT&T, and NJ Fire Department to put on an All-Star family fun day full of smiles, cheers, and prizes as we award 3 cancer survivors nominated by the very fire department they serve.

Description

The Firefighter's Wear Pink Campaign was founded in 2017. Firefighter's are 75% more likely to be affected by cancer by the end of their career than any other profession. The mission of the Firefighter's Wear Pink Campaign is to create opportunities for firefighter's and emergency personnel to forge stronger ties with communities while increasing fire safety and cancer awareness. The Firefighter’s Wear Pink Campaign is focused on creating these opportunities through a wide array of fundraising events throughout the year that helps with raising funds for members of the fire service affected by cancer. Through donations and fundraising, the Firefighter's Wear Pink Campaign has been able to provide a monetary gift to both the American Cancer Society as well as to Firefighter's and their families who have been impacted by cancer.
