The Pink Heals organization honors English teacher Tammy Sinclair at the Oct. 13 Pink Out pep rally.

During the Oct. 13 pep rally, Strutters sponsor Keasha Barnes presented the Gregg County Chapter of the Pink Heals organization a check in the amount of $275. Selling shirts to all three campuses, the Strutters organized the effort to collect money for the local organization which cares for cancer survivors in this county. The student body wore theĀ t-shirts to the pep rally for October’s Pink Out emphasis.

The organization honored English teacher Tammy Sinclair with flowers during the pep rally and recognized her for winning herĀ battle against cancer.

The Pink Heals organization is recognized by their pink fire trucks that park at events and take donations to help those undergoing cancer treatment or those who have beaten the disease. The program repurposes fire trucks and other public safety vehicles in order to make home visits to people in need and support fundraising efforts at a local level. Individuals and businesses who use the Pink Heals program for fundraising are encouraged to keep the money local to support community members, local non-profits and neighborhood initiatives. Over the past ten years, Dave has evolved the Pink Heals program from a single fire truck driven solely by him to dozens of vehicles in two countries driven by hundreds of volunteers. The names of the local fire trucks are “Amy” and “Vicki.”
