CHICO, Calif. - The first ever "Pull for a Cure" event in Chico kicked off with lots of strong arms on Saturday morning - from those in uniform and even from some young ones who might want to become first responders when they grow up.

Dozens of people woke up bright and early to watch local law enforcement don the color pink and pull heavy fire trucks in the parking lot of the Chico Mall.

The event was held to raise money for the American Cancer Society.

Volunteer Sandra Sim lost her daughter to breast cancer.

"She fought until the very end, but she did help a lot of women," Sim said. 

Sim said it's important to get out there and inspire younger women to get breast checks.

"You don't wait until your 40," she said. "You need to start doing the mammograms now and self-check, because you want to catch it soon.

Action News Now morning anchor Julia Yarbough emceed the event, which also featured classic cars and other fun family activities.
