Pasadena firefighters, along with Basecamp Fitness Pasadena and California Pizza Kitchen/Pasadena, recently raised $19,032 during its October “Pasadena Goes Pink” fundraiser, and presented the check to physicians, nurses and administrative staff to support the Jim and Eleanor Randall Breast Center.
Pasadena Fire Department has partnered with Huntington Hospital during October to bring awareness to breast cancer for the past seven years. This year’s donation is the result of fundraising throughout October, which included a walk around the Rose Bowl, a day of fundraising at the California Pizza Kitchen, T-shirt sales and “filling the boot” on the streets of Pasadena. Recognition goes out to Danae La Trobe, Pasadena Fire Department, for her role in coordinating the community events that bring ongoing support of breast cancer awareness.
“Eleanor Randall tackled her personal experience with courage, dignity and determination,” said Jane Haderlein, senior vice president, philanthropy and public relations at Huntington Hospital. “It means so much to have the men and women of the Pasadena Fire Department recognize and support women in our community.”
Jim and Eleanor Randall Breast Center is operated by Huntington Health Physicians, Huntington Hospital’s trusted outpatient physician partner group, and staffed by expert radiologists from the Hill Medical Corporation.
