Metro Fire and the Sacramento Kings Celebrate Cancer Survivors

Metro Fire and the Sacramento Kings, partnering with Albie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation, tried to make the weekend of three breast cancer survivors a little brighter, and a lot “pinker”. Metro Fire’s Pink Cancer Awareness fire engine, and its crew, drove two Sacramento Kings Dancer’s, to the home of each survivor. The Kings Dancers surprised the survivors with a bouquet of pink flowers, a bag of Kings Memorabilia, and tickets to today’s Pre-Season game. The three survivors, Laura Andrus, Teresa Partington, and Therese Shaw, along with their families, were able to take a lot of pictures with the engine, crew and dancers, and more importantly, tell their stories of survival. After meeting with the survivors, the Pink Engine and the Kings’ crew passed out pink Cancer Awareness items at Arden Fair Mall.

Join Metro Fire’s Pink Engine at tonight’s Kings Game, the first home game in the new Golden 1 Center. The crew and the engine will be available on display, so make sure to take plenty of pictures, then submit them to This email address is being protected from spambots.
