ZEELAND,M I (WHTC) -- The West Coast Chamber presented their IMPACT Award recently.  Zeeland Fire and Rescue was recognized for a positive contribution to the community through their work with the Pink Heals Tour.  The Bluebird Cancer Retreat was the recipient of funds raised by the Zeeland Fire and Rescue through the Pink Heals National Tour.  Volunteer hours were spent selling hats, tee shirts and bracelets to raise money.  Things culminated on August 19th, when the Pink Heals Tour came to Zeeland with their pink fire trucks.  The day was spent visiting with community members battling cancer to give them encouragement and let them know that they were not fighting alone.  In the evening, cancer survivors and their families were invited to sign the pink trucks and take pictures.  Zeeland Fire and Rescue volunteered a lot of time and raised more than 20-thousand dollars for Bluebird Cancer Retreat in Spring Lake.  The IMPACT Award recognizes the work of the men and women of Zeeland Fire and Rescue.
