The truck drove 300 miles from Easton, PA to Punxsutawney for the event on Saturday. It belongs to a nonprofit group called Pink Heals.

Eight local fire companies escorted the pink truck from Big Run to Lindsey Fire Hall in Punxsutawney.

Those fighting cancer and those remembering loved ones got to sign the truck. The fire department plans to make this an annual event.
