What: Pink Heals Tour 2016
The 9th Annual Pink Heals Tour began its trek this year across America on August 14. The tour traveled from Phoenix, Arizona, visiting over 50 cities, making home visits, sharing the program and touching thousands of lives. The tour will finish up in Jacksonville, Florida on November 13.
Its mission is to support people, not causes, through home visits and to help leaders and businesses maintain fundraising dollars locally in support of women and their families. Pink Heals volunteers visit individuals facing adversity in their home, the hospital or at their place of work to honor their courage, foster hope, and provide them with the love and compassion they deserve.
The Pink Heals Program was conceived and founded by Dave Graybill, a retired firefighter and former professional athlete. A loving father of two healthy children who selflessly spent his inheritance to golf across America to raise money for sick children. A visionary man who has made it his philanthropic mission to change the manner in which our country fund raises from one that focuses on causes and ribbons to one that focuses on the human element again and keeps monies raised in a community within that community to benefit its people. The Pink Heals Program has evolved from a single fire truck driven by a single fire fighter (Dave Graybill) to over 150 trucks in three countries driven by hundreds of volunteers on a mission to keep fund raising local to support the communities themselves. What started out as a mission that focused on a single disease has evolved into a Program that can heal all-things.
Dave’s visionary leadership has turned the trucks around and Pink Heals is the vehicle that this country is using to drive home much needed support for a wide range of community based initiatives. See their website at: http://www.pinkfiretrucks.org
Graybill stated, “Pink Heals is not a charity. It’s a program that creates visible and immediate change in a community by delivering donations directly to those in need. No overhead, no third-party payouts, just pure volunteerism based on love.
