BILLINGS - Have you ever seen a pink fire truck?
Well, if you drove by Rimrock Mall in Billings Wednesday afternoon you may have noticed a string of of them in the parking lot along 24th Street West.
The trucks are part of the international "Pink Heals Tour."
Since 2008, the non-profit campaign has traveled across the nation and Canada in support of women battling all forms of cancer.
The "Pink Heals Tour" aims to help cities raise money for local cancer victims; funds that will stay within each community.
At each stop all are invited to come out and sign a truck in memory or support of someone who's battling or has battled cancer.
"Oh, it's awesome, I get goosebumps," exclaims the tour's founder Dave Graybill. "Women drive four and a half hours to put their name on the truck. I didn't realize, when I created the program, I didn't know how that would affect a woman. I thought they were neat, I thought we were doing a good thing, but I didn't realize that women would gravitate to the mission statement."
The "Pink Heals Tour" started with a single pink truck, now four trucks travel on the tour with a total of 50 pink trucks in cities across the U.S. and Canada.
The tour travels to Butte on Thursday.
