Firefighter calendar raises funds for cancer organization

Written by Staff

One hot calendar

Firefighters from four agencies came together, stripped down, and got greased up to help raise funds for the Utah chapter of the American Cancer Society. The 2016 Utah Firefighter Calendar will help the 11,000 Utahns who will be diagnosed with cancer in the next 12 months.

American Cancer Society’s Road To Recovery volunteers provide an average of 1,165 trips taking cancer patients to treatment in Utah each year. They provided 348 free wigs, scarves, turbans, prostheses and gift items to patients in need.

Firefighter-turned photographer Ben Sant was the photographer who made this happen. Calendars are $20 and all proceeds go tot he ACS. Feel good that your gift to friends will help people across the state who are struggling with cancer.
