To members of area police, sheriff and fire departments, the kids fighting cancer are the real heroes.

“Shaving my head is easy. Fighting cancer isn’t easy at all,” says Mark Otterness, school resource officer for the Bismarck Police Department.

There’s a friendly rivalry that exists between the two departments. So the question is, who will raise more money this year?

“Team law’s got it. Hands down,” says Burleigh County Sheriff Pat Heinert.

“The guns are goin’ down,” says Lucas Teagle, captain of the Bismarck Fire Department.
