BRAZOS COUNTY, Texas — The Brazos County Sheriff's Office along with the Bryan, College Station and Texas A&M University Police Departments will be presenting a check for $10,481 to The Cure Starts Now - Central Texas

This generous donation was made possible through all of the agencies participation in the Beard It Up and Color for the Cure Campaigns.

From Nov. 1 officers were able to purchase the ability to grow a beard or goatee, which is normally prohibited. 

Officers donated $50 to grow a beard and $30 to grow a goatee. 

Female officers were also able to paint their nails a certain color corresponding with a cancer that has affected them, or someone they know for $30. 

All four departments will be hosting a Big Check Presentation at the Brazos County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday, Jan. 4 at 10 a.m. 

Since 2018, more than 110 law enforcement agencies have helped raised over $670,000 for The Cure Starts Now.
