Officers Austin Miller and Amy Kuhrmann of the Columbia Borough Police Department recently presented a check for $1,205 to American Cancer Society's "Making Strides" campaign for breast cancer research. Megan Howell, senior market manager, community engagement for the Cancer Society, accepted the check.

Officer Miller began the fundraiser in 2014 after seeing a similar campaign by the City of Seal Beach, CA Police Department. Miller sold pink department patches at $20 each to raise funds for the effort, which is currently ongoing. More patches will be ordered when the present supply is sold out. Miller will accept donations for the patches for those unable to pay the full amount.

Columbia Borough is the only police department involved in this fundraiser. Call 684-7735 for more information.
