West Fargo Police Department's annual Pink Patch Project raises funds for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

(West Fargo, ND) -- The West Fargo Police Department is launching their annual Pink Patch Project during the month of October to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer awareness month. The commemorative patches and challenge coins are available for purchase for $10 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday at the West Fargo Police Department lobby.

All proceeds from the sale will go to the Edith Sanford Breast Center, which improves access to comprehensive breast care and facilitates collaboration between researchers, physicians and patients to advance a shared goal of finding cures.

“This is the fourth year the West Fargo Police Department has participated in the Pink Patch Project,” said Denis Otterness, Chief of the West Fargo Police Department. “We look forward to partnering with the community each year to help us raise funds to fight breast cancer.”

Community members who purchase a patch or challenge coin are encouraged to help spread awareness and encourage others to participate by tagging @WestFargoPolice on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with pictures of their patches and #PinkPatchProject.
