The Grand Junction Fire Department was donning pink shirts all November to raise awareness and funds for the fight against cancer.
On Monday, the department announced how much money it raised.
By selling limited edition pink T-shirts in the community, firefighters collected $9,109.20, according to Derek Trombetta, a Grand Junction firefighter.
Trombetta said they sold nearly 800 T-shirts.
The fire department's going to give the money to the 'Delaney Donates Foundation', according to Trombetta.
Delaney Clements is a local girl who was diagnosed with cancer in 2010 but is now in remission. She began the Delaney Donates Foundation as a way to pay it forward to others who are struggling with the disease.
Because of the fundraiser's tremendous success, Grand Junction firefighters are planning on making Pink October an annual event, according to the G.J.F.D.
Over 900 fire departments and emergency agencies across the country joined the G.J.F.D. in showing support and raising awareness for the ongoing fight against cancer by wearing the special pink uniform T-shirts.
