DULUTH, MN. (CBS 3 Duluth)-- Duluth Police raised nearly $3,000 for breast cancer research during the month of October.

The department raised awareness for breast cancer by wearing a pink patch while also selling patches to the public for $10.

Duluth Police were able to raise $2,853, all of which will be donated to the American Cancer Society.

“I want to thank the public for your generosity in donating to this great cause,” said Chief Mike Tusken. “Everyone knows someone who’s been affected by cancer, and this is a way that people can not only receive memorabilia from the Duluth Police Department but also support a great cause to find a cure to all cancers.”

The Duluth Police Department, along with agencies throughout Minnesota who participated in the Pink Patch Project, will attend a check presentation on Wednesday at the American Cancer Society office, in Eagan, Minnesota.

Next October, the Duluth Police will again raise money for the American Cancer Society through the Pink Patch Project campaign.
