Welcome to Kris Wood's Fundraising Page
I first became interested in the TDR when I first arrived at the North Cowichan/Duncan Detachment two years ago, however I did not have the opportunity to apply until this year. The Cowichan Valley is very involved in fundraising for the TDR. I have attended the Duncan Gala dinner's every year and have seen first hand how it has impacted previous TDR riders. Between training, working full-time and caring for my family there is no doubt that this will be a challenging yet rewarding.
Cancer has touched everyone in one shape or form. I personally have lost a best friend and my father-in-law to cancer. In 2002 I was at Depot (RCMP police academy) training to become a Mountie when I found out that my very close friend has passed from cancer. I was devastated. I continued my training, as I knew that I would not be able to come back and finish. My good friend would have been the first to tell me to stay put and finish training to succeed in a life long dream of becoming a police officer. In 2009, I was posted with my family in Arctic Bay, Nunavut Territory and was informed that my father-in-passed. As my family was so far away and it would have cost thousands of dollars to be by his side when suffering we made a difficult decision to stay home and attended the funeral.
I have enjoyed working with my junior riders and after visiting Camp Goodtimes can now clearly understand where the majority of the fundaising is going from TDR. I am extremely honoured to part of the 20th anniversary team and look forward to visiting all the communities that support this incredible cause.
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.
