Who We Are
Pink Heals Lake Country Inc. is a community group based in the Lake Country area of Waukesha County, Wisconsin. We are firefighters, law enforcement officers, business owners, neighbers, families, and friends dedicating our time and efforts to support people dealing with cancer.
As a local chapter of the National Pink Heals Organization, Pink Heals Lake Country believes that money raised in our communities should remain local to support people in our communities.
Our chapter has its very own pink fire truck named Tonya. Previously a part of the National Organization, Tonya joined the Lake Country communities in 2013 and has memorials and names of survivors from across the country as well as here in the Lake Country area.
100% of the funds raised by Pink Heals Lake Country stay in the local community.
How It Works
Pink Heals relies upon volunteers that are passionate about supporting people. Many of our volunteers have had personal experiences with cancer or have someone they know that inspires them to be a part of our local chapter.
Through the sale of our clothing and merchandise, we are able to raise money for the upkeep of our pink fire truck Tonya. This allows us to attend and participate in events and benefits to raise money and awareness to support the very people that we serve.
Bringing love and smiles to those that need it most is just one small thing we do.
One of the greatest things Pink Heals provides is love and support to those with cancer. We will be happy to load up our pink fire truck Tonya and come right to the front door of the patient or to the hospital.
We often work with friends and family members to coordinate visits. Please contact us if you know someone who could benefit from a visit. We want them to know that nobody fights alone and they are loved beyond imagination.
We serve the communities of Ashippun, Chenequa, Delafield, Dousman, Genesee, Hartland, Lisbon, Merton, Nashotah, North Lake, North Prairie, Oconomowoc, Okauchee, Pewaukee, Stone Bank, Summit, Sussex, and Wales.
We invite you to volunteer in any way you can. Opportunities include representing us at events by greeting those who are attracted to Tonya or our merchandise, joining with us on a home visit or at a fundraiser, or by working behind the scenes organizing and planning events.
