What do red firetrucks, awesome firefighters and a dalmation named Angus have to do with Breast Cancer? Well for starters, the Durham Highway Fire Department recently held a charity Car Wash to benefit the 1in9 Foundation. A wonderful day–complete with firefighters washing everything including a dump truck, hotdogs & tours of the station helped make the event a great success!
With the monies raised that day, the DHFD decided to adopt a 1in9 patient and assist her with some of her basic necessities like gas, groceries and personal care items. “The Department’s gift has made a tremendous impact on this patient,” said Stephanie Beguelin, Founder of 1in9. “With caring community partners like the DHFD, we are able to Give Back to those in need. We truly can’t thank them enough!”
