Why participate in the Pink Patch Project this year? We participated for kids like Jeremiah, a brave 12 year old who has been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

We hope that our patch will bring a bit of joy to this brave young man, and let him know that he has friends thinking of him here in SLO County. #JeremiahStrong #SLOSheriffsWearPink #PinkPatchProject Sheriff's Advisory Foundation Ian Parkinson, Sheriff
