Pasco Police go pink for October

Pasco Police go pink for October

The Pasco Police Department is partnering up with the Tri-Cities Cancer Center and Kadlec Foundation during the month of October by selling Pink Patches for $10.00 each.

The goal is to raise awareness and funds to assist with cancer research, treatment, care for those who are currently battling, or are recovering from cancer.

The Pink Patch Project started back in 2015 at the Irwindale Police Department in California as a way to raise funds for breast cancer awareness and research. From there, the movement spread quickly and now over 130 agencies are participating throughout the country. The Pasco PD is the first to do so in Washington State.

All of the proceeds will be donated to local cancer organizations, 50% to the Tri-Cities Cancer Center for breast cancer research, treatment, assistance and prevention and 50% to the Kadlec Foundation for Pediatric Oncology to assist local children and families in their fight.
