TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Firefighters and police officers showed their colors for women -- and men-- battling cancer.

The Pink Heals Tour with its rosy-red fire trucks stopped at several locations in Topeka Thursday to raise money to support cancer survivors.

Fire Chief Greg Bailey signed one of the trucks in honor of his dad, Russel Bailey, who survived gastrointestinal cancer.

He had his stomach removed, Bailey said. "We're surviving every day with him," he said.

Mayor Bill Bunten stopped by SW 9th Street and even donned a hot pink jacket in support.

He also offered a proclamation declaring August 6 - 10 as "Cares Enough To Wear Pink Week."

Topeka is one of 74 cities the tour hits in 84 days.
