The Pink Patch Project is an innovative public awareness campaign designed to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support breast cancer research organizations in combating this devastating disease.
The Pink Patch Project is a collaborative effort between law enforcement and public safety agencies throughout the nation. These agencies have partnered together to combat breast cancer by raising public awareness and to raise funds for breast cancer research and treatment.
Each public safety agency collaborating in the Pink Patch Project campaign has partnered with a cancer research organization or support group in their respective community. As part of this initiative, many of the agencies are selling their pink patches, along with pink patch t-shirts, challenge coins, and other commemorative pink patch items, directly to the community. The proceeds from sale of these items will go directly to benefit cancer research and treatment at their chosen organization.
You can support the Pink Patch Project by purchasing pink patches, t-shirts and other items directly from the agencies involved in the campaign!!!
The Glendale Police Department started participating in the Pink Patch Project campaign in 2019 and hopes that each year it will continue to grow. We want to show our pink to the community, start that conversation about early detection and just give an overall support to anyone affected by breast cancer.
A portion of the money collected will be donated to Bosom Buddies of Arizona, which is a non profit organization in Phoenix that offers support and resources to the men and women affected by breast cancer. GDP officers will be wearing their pink patches and others will have custom designed t-shirts to wear and show their support. And many will have their Challenge Coin handy, so be sure to have yours on you should you be challenged to produce yours!
