Marion County Officers Support Breast Cancer
This morning Marion County officals gathered to raise money for an organization that impacts millions.
At the Ocala Police Department, officers hosted a car wash to benefit the Breast Cancer Association.
Wearing pink shirts and even some pink bras, officers washed cars that came to support.
Members from the Ocala, Dunnelon, and Belleview Police Departments came together because for many of them... its a disease that hits close to home.
"Cancer affects everybody. And even thought we're other today raising money for breast cancer, you know, my father who died of cancer, you know. So it affects everybody in the community and it's not just one or two people… and as you talk to people you find out there probably isn't anybody that isn't touched by some form of cancer," said Maj. Terry Bovaird from Marion County Sheriff's Office.
The car wash didn't have a set price and people were donating what they could.
