Meet Sara. Sara is the coordinator for Turn Central Florida Pink. She helps schedule the pink fire truck and set up community events.
The pink firetruck operates on our volunteer availability basis. We really like to have our pink firetruck at as many events as possible. However, with it being operated by volunteers, we are limilted to their availability and schedules. We try to accomodate as many requests as possible and appreciate your understanding.

We are Passionately Pink and are honored to be able to help the women of our community.
When you purchase a Pink shirt from us, the proceeds go to provide monthly grants for mammograms for women that can not afford them.
We team up with the Waterman Foundation to provide these grants at Advent Health Waterman in Tavares.
To date, we have provided over $10,000 in grants to assist women receive a life saving mammogram.

The Pink Fire Truck is one of Central Florida's very first Pink Fire Trucks. The decommissioned firetruck was donated to the charity from the Lake Public Safety Department in 2013. In 2021, we introduced a new retired truck to serve all of Central Florida from a newer model truck donated from Marion County Fire Rescue. The Pink Fire Truck is available for FREE year round for community events. The truck is in high demand and is scheduled as requests come in. The truck is offered free to our community, however, it is very costly to operate and maintenance. We rely on donations and sponsors to keep the truck in service. As a thank you to our sponsors, we proudly display their logo on the truck for a period of one year. If you are interested in being a sponsor, we are always accepting sponsors. Sponsorships start at only $150 for a one year sponsorship.
The purpose of the Pink Fire Truck is to honor the women of our community. It serves as a mobile tribute to those that have battled cancer and provides awareness to everyone in the community.
Starting in 2021, the new Pink FIre Truck is being named after a cancer survivor and each year after, in October, the truck will be dedicated and named after a special woman that has overcome cancer and will proudly carry her name on the truck throughout the year.
2023/2024 PINK TRUCK HONOREE - GRACIE
The Pink Fire Truck has been dedicated and named after a very special survivor this year. An oncology social worker at our AdventHealth Waterman Cancer Institute, Gracie is trained to assist patients and their families during every step of their cancer treatment, from diagnosis to remission and at every step in between — a journey that she knows well.
Gracie’s cancer story began at the age of 18 when she lost her mom to breast cancer. It was then that she decided to dedicate her career to supporting people impacted by cancer. Her dream was to ensure no one had to face this disease alone.
Gracie never imagined she might one day be the one receiving a cancer diagnosis, but on January 12, 2023, she learned she had breast cancer at the age of 41. “It was a surreal moment; I was now the one being prayed for and comforted. I was now a cancer patient,” she said.

202I/2022 PINK TRUCK HONOREE - MARY
In our innaugural debut in October of 2021, the truck was dedicated and named in honor of Mary. Mary's breast cancer was detected through a mammogram at Advent Health Waterman and was able to start treatment and overcome cancer. Read Mary's story here
