For the second year in a row, with the help from the community and partners, Bryan County Emergency Services raised awareness for breast cancer as well as $1,000 for a donation to Susan G. Komen of Coastal Georgia foundation.
Firefighters, medics and other employees of Bryan County and local businesses around the community, such as Urgent Care, Pals in Richmond Hill and the First Bank of Coastal Georgia in Pembroke ,wore pink T-shirts. The shirts were sold and worn to support breast-cancer awareness.
“We hope we’ve accomplished our goal of bringing awareness to the cause and urge women to get checked,” Fire Chief Freddy Howell said. “Through our donation, we hope to help support a cure for this disease. This year, we had so much community support and we appreciate all the local businesses partnering with us on this.”
