ABOUT THE PROJECT

The Pink Patch Project (PPP) 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 purposes of the PPP are to:

  • Raise awareness about breast cancer and the importance of early detection and treatment.
  • Raise funds for cancer research, treatment and education through the sale of commemorative pink patches (and other items).

HOW PUBLIC SAFETY AGENCIES CAN PARTNER WITH THE PINK PATCH PROJECT

Each agency manages their PPP program locally and independently, implementing their program in a way that best fits their department. Each agency designs and obtains their own patches and supports the program at the agency level. Because each agency designs their PPP program to fit their particular needs, the agency can choose to employ all, or only some, of the program’s main components:

  • Allowing uniformed staff to wear pink patches on their uniform in the field each October during “Breast Cancer Awareness Month”.
  • Raising funds to support a cancer-centric organization by promoting and selling their pink patches in a way that best fits their particular agency.

RAISING FUNDS CAN BE FUN AND BUILD A BOND WITH YOUR COMMUNITY

Selling pink patches is just one way to raise funds.

Many agencies have come up with other fun, interesting, and inventive ways to spread the word and to raise funds for their program.

In addition to selling their pink patches, many agencies also sell everything from PPP t-shirts, challenge coins, stickers, dog tags, etc. 

 

 

A CORNERSTONE OF THE PROJECT IS FUNDRAISING AND CONTRIBUTING TO A BREAST CANCER RESEARCH ORGANIZATION OR SUPPORT GROUP

City of Hope in Duarte, California is the founding beneficiary of the PPP and is our official partner in this initiative. Agencies that select City of Hope as their beneficiary may sell their PPP merchandise online through an online store managed by City of Hope and have the advantage of other forms of support from City of Hope.

While partnering with City of Hope is a great way to go, each agency has the option of partnering with any cancer- focused organization and then working directly with that organization on engagement and the donation terms.

THE PROJECT UNITES THE COMMUNITY AND LAW ENFORCEMENT THROUGH A JOINT EFFORT

Through innovative sales techniques, such as friendly competitions, to going to public events, agencies can connect with their community over a common thread - putting an end to breast cancer.

You'll find your community will support your agency's efforts by purchasing patches, shirts, hats, and more.

The sky is the limit and the agency can use any method they choose in order to raise funds for their program. Many of our agencies have come up with creative and inventive ways to sell patches and raise funds!

A Brief History

Originating in 2013 with the Seal Beach Police Department in Southern California who wore pink patches on their uniforms during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

STAGE 1 FIVE-YEAR SURVIVAL RATE98%
STAGE 2 FIVE-YEAR SURVIVAL RATE90%
STAGE 3 FIVE-YEAR SURVIVAL RATE66%

In 2015, the Irwindale Police Department in California ran with the idea and sold their patches to the community, raising over $20,000.00 for one of the nation's largest and most effective cancer centers, the City of Hope. 

Chief Anthony Miranda took the idea to the Los Angeles Police Chiefs Association and 25 local agencies came on board. 

Today, the program has expanded to several hundred partner agencies throughout the world and includes partners from police, sheriff, fire, EMS and federal departments worldwide.
