Pink Heals is a movement that recognizes the importance of women and raises money to help fight all illnesses that visit them.Nancy Run firefighter Bill Andress was so impressed by the pink firetrucks when they toured the Lehigh Valley in 2013 that he and his wife vowed to form their own chapter.

But first, he needed a firetruck. He found a 1962 red pumper that had a few dings, scratches and the rust that is so inevitable in a truck that old. Bethlehem Area Vo-Tech's auto collision repair class, took on the challenge of turning it into a pink lady. Under the guidance of Bill Gruschow, they did the body work, heat to toe, and then painted her pink.
The paint job had a lady's touch. Yarilee Rodriguez (10th grade) and Katiane Rodriguez (11th grade) were among the students who helped transform Sally.
Sally will be dedicated at Steelstacks on May 16. You can read more about Sally and PinkHealsLV on their Facebook page.
