Cops for Cancer

Police officers across the province play a leadership role in organizing the Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer events by involving the community in fundraising and cancer awareness activities. The events range from head shaves in public places to participating in bike rides, such as Pedal for Hope, to organizing various school-based fundraising activities, food sales, jail and bails, auctions, raffles etc. To raise funds in the fight against cancer, event participants collect pledges from their co-workers, friends, family and community members.

Cops for Cancer is an exciting annual event that takes place each fall, when over a hundred law enforcement and emergency services personnel from across the province brave all types of weather as they cycle up to two weeks across the daunting terrain of Vancouver Island, Northern BC, the coast of British Columbia and the Fraser Valley. This year Tour de North riders travel over 850 km from Williams Lake to Dawson Creek

Why? Because the impact of cancer on the life of a child and their family is devastating. Donations made to the Canadian Cancer Society through Cops for Cancer are used to fund life-saving research and caring programs like Camp Goodtimes to reduce its impact on families.

Camp Goodtimes is a summer recreation program that provides a unique summer experience for children and teens affected by cancer and their families. Camp Goodtimes provides a safety-focussed, medically supervised, fun and recreational experience for children and youth with cancer and their families. Set in the scenic landscape of Loon Lake in Maple Ridge, Camp Goodtimes provides this recreational program at no cost to participants. Camp Goodtimes is accredited by the British Columbia Camping Association and the Canadian Association of Pediatric Oncology Camps (CAPOC).
