Burnaby Cops For Cancer Jail and Bail Event - Friday September 15, 2017
On Friday, September 15, 2017, I have agreed to be arrested, and jailed, to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society's Cops for Cancer "Tour de Coast." In order to be released from custody, I have committed to raising $9,000 for this very worthwhile cause.
Donations made to the Canadian Cancer Society through Cops for Cancer are used to fund life-saving research into pediatric cancer and caring programs for children like Camp Goodtimes.
The impact of cancer on the life of a child and their family is devastating, however, Camp Goodtimes helps to reduce the impact cancer has on the life of a child and their family.
Sixteen-year-old Honorary Staff Sergeant Major Casey Wright’s small stature (that's him in the picture with me at Depot) is deceiving: his personality is larger than life, an attribute that has helped him and his family cope with ongoing treatment for a brain tumour since he was six months old. Casey and his family have attended Camp Goodtimes a number of times and the camp has really assisted them in coping with Casey's cancer and ongoing treatments.
The cost for a child to attend Camp Goodtimes is $1,500 and I have agreed to raise enough money for six children to attend the camp next summer.
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. Tax receipts are issued instantly when you donate online.
Thanks for your support!
Staff Sergeant Major John A. Buis
