Pink Patch Project

The month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Most people know someone who has been affected by breast cancer.  It is the leading cause of death in women between the ages of 40 and 55.  When breast cancer is found early, the five-year survival rate is 98%.

The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department, along with other law enforcement agencies around the country, are proud participants in the Pink Patch Project.  This project is a campaign designed to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer.  The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Activities League (SAL) has chosen to make our pink patches available for purchase, with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the Albie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation.  Albie Aware is a local charity organization that provides support and education to those facing a breast cancer diagnosis.

Please visit our social media pages to view our Pink Patch video.  Collectors can purchase Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department Pink Patches by visiting www.ssdsal.org at a cost of $10.00 each.
