VIDEO: Scenes from the Komen Chicago walk as it passed through Arlington Heights, Prospect Heights, and Mount Prospect.

Pink was everywhere at Greens Park in Arlington Heights near Olive School. Arlington Heights firefighters wore pink T-shirts for the day at all fire stations. Those T-shirts were for sale for a donation of $15 at the lunch time camp at Greens Park, where they brought MABAS Decon 1 and made it available for cooling showers. Decon 1 is the decontamination truck available for local firefighters in hazmat situations, including rinses to remove pollutants during water rescues in ponds and flooded reservoirs.

Proceeds from the T-shirt sales are being passed on to Komen Chicago. Firefighters will have a booth available for additional pink T-shirt sales on Friday at the Mane Event, “Million Dollar Block Party” on Friday, August 12, 5 – 11 p.m., at Vail Avenue and Campbell Street.

Komen Chicago celebrated the Closing Ceremonies Sunday evening for the 2011 Susan G. Komen Three Day for the Cure. Over 1,900 walkers raised over $5M in the fight against breast cancer!

Susan G. Komen for the Cure, formerly known as The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, and often simply known as Komen, is the most widely known, largest and best-funded breast cancer organization in the US.

Susan Goodman, later Susan Goodman Komen, was born in 1943 in Peoria, Illinois, and was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 33 in 1977. She died three years later. Komen’s younger sister, Nancy Goodman Brinker, who felt that Susan’s outcome might have been better if patients knew more about cancer and its treatment, made a promise to her sister that she would do everything she could to end breast cancer. To fulfill that promise, Brinker founded the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation in Komen’s memory in 1982.
