(West Fargo, ND) -- The West Fargo Police Department is launching their annual Pink Patch Project, in partnership with Sandy’s Donuts, during the month of October to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer awareness month.

“This is the fifth year the West Fargo Police Department has participated in the Pink Patch Project,” said Chief Denis Otterness in a statement released to WDAY Radio. “We encourage the public to help us win the fight against breast cancer while supporting a great local cause.”

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. Patches are also available at the West Fargo Sandy’s Donuts during business hours.

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.

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