Law enforcement raises funds for Sage by not shaving
SWEETWATER COUNTY, WYO – Local law enforcement agencies recently raised more than $1,000 through the “No Shave November” program to help a wonderful Rock Springs girl.
Sage Sell, age 3, the daughter of Orin and Arlene Cole Sell, has been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She must have weekly treatments for the next nine months, followed by monthly procedures for two years at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Participants in “No Shave November” events forego shaving and grow beards and moustaches, donating the money they would have spent shaving, and/or $25 each for the months of November and December. Men and women from the agencies, both sworn and non-sworn, participated in the event.
Sweetwater County Sheriff Mike Lowell said the Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Office raised $520, and the Green River Police Department kicked in $480. That money was presented recently to the Sell family. The Rock Springs Police Department also participated.
Lowell said this is the third year Sweetwater County law enforcement has participated.
