SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane Police Department says their 2019 "Movember" efforts were the best to date, raising a record amount of money towards cancer awareness and funds.
During the month of November, officers were able to donate a minimum of $75 towards the Community Cancer Fund in order to be excused from the department's uniform/appearance guidelines and sport beards and/or mustaches. Officers participating in Movember also donned yellow ribbons.
"SPD would like to thank all those who donated to Community Cancer Fund for our No Shave November event," SPD wrote in a post.
"2019 was the best year yet, raising over $4,100 dollars to donate to CCF!"
