In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Richmond Fire Department and Richmond Firefighters Local 188 are selling RFD t-shirts.

The t-shirts for this year’s event are again a tribute to Glenda Perry, the late wife of Engineer Brandon Perry who died from breast cancer last year, according to Local 188, the union representing Richmond firefighters.

All proceeds from shirt sales will be donated to Project Pink Wheels to help fund RFD’s own Richmond Pink Wheels program, “as it was such a positive part of Glenda’s and countless others cancer treatment stories,” fire officials said.

Shirts are available on a first-come, first-served basis until all 200 are sold.

To order, email [email protected] and request the size you’d like and how many in each size you’d like. Shirts are $30 each. Additional donations accepted will go directly to supporting Project Pink Wheels. Also make sure to include your full name and contact phone number.

Only in-person pick-ups will be offered. No shipping is available.

Local 188 expressed gratitude in advance to the community for supporting this cause.

“Richmond firefighters are proud to support all those who have and currently are battling breast cancer,” officials said.
