The Albany Police Department defended its title on Friday, Oct. 30, by winning the fourth annual CDTA Pink Bus Pull to support the American Cancer Society’s Real Men Wear Pink campaign.
A team of Albany Probationary Firefighters came in third and the Albany Fire Department came in third.
Teams from CDTA, Albany Medical Center Hospital, CDPHP and Commercial Lending Advisors brought teams of eight people together for a test of strength and a race against the clock as they pulled a 30,000-pound pink bus 10 feet.
For the fifth year, CDTA is partnering with the American Cancer Society on its Real Men Wear Pink Campaign. As part of the initiative a pink bus is out on Capital Region streets to raise
awareness and support the campaign. Materials and decals to transform the pink bus were donated by NAPA Auto Parts, Lamar Advertising and Seifert Transit Graphics.
Last year, CDTA employees helped raised over $8,000 for Real Men Wear Pink. Overall, the 2019 Capital Region Real Men Wear Pink campaign raised more than $370,000 becoming the top earning campaign in the country.
