Cops and Firefighters For Cancer?


I realize that it is most likely just me, but I have always had a problem with the phrase "Cops FOR Cancer". I would think that the proper application of the Queen's English would be "Cops Against Cancer".

A press release from the city announcing that local firefighters will be wearing pink for the month of October in a campaign 'Firefighters For Cancer" prompts me to voice my concern that we may be misusing a most important communications tool.
