Treat of the Day: Troopers don male rompers after raising funds for cancer cure

A group of DPS troopers fulfilled a promise to donors to the Cure Starts Now by donning pink male rompers for a photoshoot.

The troopers sent the call out on Facebook in July, agreeing to the romper photoshoot if they could raise $4,000 for the organization that fights childhood cancer. The public answered the call.

The cause is personal for the troopers. One of them, Troy Bridier, lost his own daughter Jade, 4, to DIPG (a rare brain cancer) just days after she was diagnosed. Now, he and his family are pledging to fight the disease to help other families affected.
