Pink Tractor Raising Breast Cancer Awareness in Belpre

You've heard of pink houses.

Well how about pink tractors to sow the seed of a cure.

In Belpre a piece of farm equipment you might have seen throughout this month is one of a kind.

This is one impressive tractor, decked out in pink for breast cancer and has traveled all over Belpre this month.

Its owner - Belpre resident Roger Snider - says it started as a senior project his daughter was doing and half way through they decided to go pink.

Snider's sister has survived breast cancer and his grandmother fought it for several years, but that was just part of the motivation.

He knows people that had painted tractors purple and gold for different cancers but no one had gone pink.

Snider wanted to spread awareness in a unique way this month.

"Everyone I talk to absolutely loves it, they think it's a great thing," he says. "As it travels around town there has been several businesses and stuff in town that has asked to have it there, there's been some I've asked if I could park it there. I mean it's been all over Belpre, all month, everyday it's been at a different spot."

Snider says this is just the beginning.

He has plans to paint a blue tractor next for prostate cancer.

Snider says he really has a blast doing this and especially because it is for such a good cause.
