CHICO, Calif. - The Pull for a Cure Chico Family Fun Day and Car Show takes place in the parking lot of the Chico Mall on Saturday, Oct. 20 from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.

The day of the event, teams of 10 will compete to pull a 44,000-pound fire truck 30 feet. Each team must raise at least $500.  

There will also be a car show organized by one of the Real Men Wear Pink Ambassadors, Bob Fitzgerald of Concours Elite Collision Center in Chico. Fitzgerald told Linda Watkins-Bennett on Action News Now at Noon that his father had a breast removed because of breast cancer, and lived until he was 86 years old.
