Renton's firefighters will go pink next week to promote awareness during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The city's firefighters, members of Renton Fire Fighters Local 864, will wear pink fire department t-shirts as they go about their daily duties at the city's fire stations Oct. 15-19.

They'll also do fundraisers as part of a nationwide campaign supporting women in their fight against cancer.

At the IAFF 50th convention in August 2010, delegates adopted a resolution to encourage IAFF members to participate in campaigns honoring women fighting cancer.
