It was simple coin toss, but its meaning was so much more.

On Tuesday morning last week around 9 a.m.,  Middleton Fire Chief Aaron Harris and Middleton Police Chief Brad Keil flipped a special Middleton Police Department coin to decide who will be the home team at the second annual Battle of the Badges in August. 
 
The charity softball game between the two departments will raise awareness and funds to help families affected by childhood cancer.  This year they will play for five-year-old Cole Truitt, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on Nov. 6. The fire department won Tuesday’s toss and will be the home team in 2013.
 
The Battle of the Badges was originally inspired by James Helmuth, who died earlier this year.
