ABOUT "COLORS FOR A CAUSE"
We were founded in 2011 as a way to honor 10 year old Brennan Daigle from Westlake, Louisiana whose battle with cancer created an army of supporters worldwide. Recognizing that there were a multitude of organizations supporting people battling the many different forms of cancer, it was decided that there was a need for an organization that would work to help anyone, with any form of cancer, anywhere.
By not limiting ourselves to focusing on raising awareness of just one form of cancer, we freed ourselves to take on any challenge sent our way. What started out as a challenge to build a little boy that loved the US military a custom truck has grown into an organization that knows no borders, no boundaries, and no limits.
By utilizing the equipment used by our country's Fire, Police, Military, and EMS personnel, we hope to remind people that even heroes have heroes. Our heroes are the people that fight hard every day against cancer. They fight a battle that is long and hard and not fought fairly by their enemy. Our heroes are winning that battle, and we're there to help them do it, any way we can.
The spirit and strength of our founder, Brennan Daigle, lives on in everything we do, every project we complete, and every challenge we undertake. Brennan's legacy will live on through Colors for a Cause as we strive to increase awareness of the need for more research, funding, and knowledge about all the forms of cancer that affect our communities.
