MPD and MFD team up with GO PINK


The Maui Police and Fire Departments are teaming up with the Pacific Cancer Foundation for their Annual GO PINK campaign in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Maui County’s cancer community. 

To kick off the campaign in the spirit of friendly competition and community building, the MPD and MFD will host a terrific “Battle of the Badges” softball game on September 17 at 6 p.m. at Maehara Baseball Stadium in Wailuku.

During the month of October, look for your local Police officers and Firefighters wearing pink T-shirts. Members from each department submitted artwork for this year’s t-shirt design contest. Over 700 votes were cast, and the designs of Richelle Wakamatsu and Reid Okazaki were deemed the winners Friday, July 29th.  Maui Police and Fire Departments and Pacific Cancer Foundation would like to thank the Westin Maui Resort & Spa and the Grand Wailea Waldorf Astoria for donating a “staycation” as prizes for the winners. 

The MPD and MFD are printing the winning designs on pink t-shirts while engaging in a friendly competition to see which department can sell the most logo wear to benefit the Pacific Cancer Foundation.  The Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighters have also designed a shirt available for sale at the Maui airport to benefit PCF. 

MPD and MFD logo wear will be available beginning September 15th and can be purchased online at www.pacificcancerfoundation, at the Fire Chief’s Office at the Kahului Fire Station, or the Wailuku Police Station.

“We are so grateful for this partnership with the Maui Police and Fire Departments!  It is amazing they work hard keeping our island safe, and still make time to engage in this incredible campaign to support our organization,” commented Nancy LaJoy Executive Director of Pacific Cancer Foundation.
