In recognition of October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Fourth District Supervisor Janice Hahn joined the Los Angeles County Fire Department’s (LACoFD) Lifeguard Division in painting Tower 60 pink! The “Paint it Pink” event took place on Saturday morning, October 5, 2019 at El Segundo Beach.

Painting Tower 60 pink was truly a collaborative effort as many community members volunteered to lend a helping hand.

The LACoFD Lifeguard Division’s pink hat is available for purchase at the Hermosa, Santa Monica and Zuma Lifeguard Headquarters. All proceeds benefit the Cancer Research Institute.

“This is an opportunity to raise awareness about early warning signs of breast cancer as well as raise up the stories of people and families who have been affected by this terrible disease,” said Supervisor Hahn.

During the month of October, LACoFD lifeguards are wearing pink hats while on-duty in remembrance, support and celebration of those who have been affected by cancer.
