'Pink Heals' tour brings hot pink fire truck to Pigeon Forge

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- If you see a pink fire truck in Pigeon Forge this weekend, there's a reason: It's touring to raise funds to fight cancer.

Cory Ginter with the Pigeon Forge Fire Department says the bright pink trucks are part of a "Pink Heals" tour.

"It's kind of a neat thing. The fire trucks not only represent women with breast cancer but any kind of cancer so these woman can come see these trucks and take a marker and sign it," he says.

There are several events planned around the trucks pulling into town this weekend, including the fire truck signing and a truck pull competition. All the money raised goes to benefit cancer care in Sevier County.

"So if they're going back and forth to chemo we can buy them gas cards, if they're going to be in the hospital we can pay to get their grass mowed," says Ginter.

To participate, visit the Island in Pigeon Forge at 2 p.m. Sunday. Organizers say they hope people will get there early to greet the drivers as they come into town.
