The City of Prattville is asking all breast cancer survivors to join in a celebration of survival!! In conjunction with the national breast cancer awareness observation, the City of Prattville will be gathering around the Historical Fountain at Heritage Park on Friday, October 12th at 7a.m., to "turn the fountain pink" in acknowledgment of local breast cancer survivors.

Local survivors will release pink balloons as a symbol of "letting go" of the cancer, as Mayor Bill Gillespie Jr. and survivors turn the water in the fountain pink. The city is excited to once again have this opportunity to show support to breast cancer fighters, to admire the survivors and honor the taken, while encouraging hope and breast cancer awareness. "This is our 4th year to hold this event and we invite everyone from our area to come out early that morning and celebrate with other survivors," said Special Events Director Kellie Cook.

The date is also being promoted as "Wear Pink Day." The Prattville Fire Department is selling "Firefighters for a cure" pink t-shirts. The shirts are $12, with proceeds benefiting the Joy to Life Foundation.

For more information, or if you are a local breast cancer survivor and would like to take place in the event, please call the City of Prattville's Special Events office at (334) 358-0297.
