Welcome to Chelsea Cofield's Fundraising Page
My name is Chelsea Cofield and I am honoured to be part of the 2017 Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock team!
Ever since I was in elementary school, I remember the Tour de Rock riders coming through and all the excitement that surrounded them! I thought to myself, "Well that would be fun, but I don't want to be a cop, I want to be a dancer." Fast forward to present day, I'm still a dancer and somehow ended up becoming a police officer. One of my first thoughts after I was hired by Saanich Police was that this amazing childhood memory could turn into a reality for myself.
I'm riding for everyone I know who has battled, is battling or has lost their battle to cancer. These individuals include some of my very close family members, friends, as well as acquaintances. In addition to these amazing people who inspired me to hop on a bike and start peddling, I am also motivated by the kids who themselves are battling cancer. No matter what hill, extreme weather system or obstacle we face during training or tour, nothing compares to what each child and their family goes through when they are faced with cancer.
The money raised from this event helps fund leading-edge cancer research that is improving cancer treatments, preventing cancer and saving lives; provide reliable and up-to-date information on cancer, risk reduction and treatment; offer vital community-based support services for people living with cancer and their families; and advocate for healthy public policies.
Since it is the 20th year of the Tour de Rock, I will shave my head (sorry mom!) if I can raise $20,000!! That is a promise. Please pledge me and help me reach my fundraising goal!
Every pledge takes us one step further in the fight against cancer. Online pledging is secure and it saves the Canadian Cancer Society money by reducing administrative costs.
Thank you everyone for your support!!
Sincerely your dancer/cop,
