Posted by Ellen Krafve - bio | email

Released by Angela Jenkins with Tyler ISD:

The Tyler Independent School District will participate tomorrow, October 15, in the city-wide event, "Turn Tyler Pink" Day. Tyler ISD is encouraging all students and staff to wear pink in support of cancer awareness. 

The Tyler Fire Department is trying to turn all of Tyler Pink on Thursday in honor of women battling cancer.  They are asking businesses, schools, and all citizens to wear pink on this date.  Tyler ISD is proud to support their efforts.

"We are so excited about this very special event," said Angela Jenkins, Director of Communications and Public Relations for Tyler ISD.  "What better way to show our support to local fire fighters and this very special cause than to participate and wear pink.  We hope our schools are a sea of pink on this day." 

The Tyler Fire Department will also host an event on Thursday that will take place on the Tyler Downtown Square from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Tyler is fortunate enough to be the first stop in Texas for the "Pink Heals Tour," which is stopping in 32 cities across the nation to assist local organizations help women with cancer. The tour consists of two fire engines and one ladder truck; these trucks are painted pink and are driven by firefighters and volunteers from across the nation.  In addition to the pink fire trucks, there will be food, fun, music, kids' activities, health information, blood drive, and free screenings.

So please join with us this year, that we may show the state and nation that Tyler, Texas, truly "CARES Enough To Wear Pink" for those that are fighting this devastating disease.
