Members of the South Fayette Township Police Department will participate in No-Shave November to help fight cancer.

Police officers have special permission to break their dress code for the month to raise money for cancer research and education, treatment and prevention, according to a news release from the department.

The department’s fundraising goal is $10,000. The public can donate online at In November, lavender bracelets will be available at the township building and police station, 515 Millers Run Road, for a minimum $5 cash donation. Donors also can show proof of their online donation to claim a bracelet.

Participants are encouraged to post their No-Shave and lavender photos on social media with the hashtag #SFAgainstCancer and to tag South Fayette Township (Facebook @SouthFayetteTownship, Instagram @SouthFayettePA, Twitter @SouthFayetteTwp). Check South Fayette Township’s social media pages for progress photos of the police officers, plus other interactive and educational content.

No-Shave November’s mission is to not only raise funds for cancer research and treatment but to educate people about preventative measures. For more than six years, participants around the globe have put down their razors and let their hair grow to join the fight against cancer. The No-Shave November campaign has successfully raised more than $3.5 million to combat the disease.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
