CHICO, Calif. - October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and local first responders are raising awareness. 

Commander Billy Aldridge is representing Chico's finest in this year's Real Men Wear Pink fundraiser.

He's competing with other first responders in our area to raise funds to help in the fight against breast cancer. 

"My mother was taken from cancer. We've had officers impacted by cancer, we've had officer's spouses impacted by cancer, and anything I can do from my position in the police department to bring attention to the issue...I'm going to do," said Aldridge. 

This month, all Chico police officers will wear the pink patch on their uniforms. They also have wrapped a police vehicle in the color.

Cool today with clouds clearing out. This weekend will be sunny with some record breaking heat in the North Valley. High in the mid-60s next week with high fire danger.
