The 108 Mile Ranch Volunteer Fire Department (108MRVFD) had a very successful Pink Shirt Day on Oct. 22 at the 108 Mall.

They raised approximately $1,200 with the sale of 60 pink T-shirts. This funding goes to support the Breast Cancer Society of Canada.

Donations support breast cancer research in the areas of early detection, treatment, quality of life, translational research, prevention, fundamental laboratory investigation and health services.

Thanks go to the 108MRVFD members for their participation in this important event.
