WEST FARGO — The West Fargo Police Department is launching the 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. 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, 800 4th Ave. E.

Patches are also available at the West Fargo Sandy’s Donuts, 301 Main Ave. W., 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.

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

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.
