Hi! My name is Alex and I'm in Grade 10 at Oak Bay high. I am participating in Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock to support the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society.
In October I will be cutting off about 10 inches of my hair to raise money. The money I raise is going to help send sick kids to camp. There are a lot of kids who aren't able to go to camp and act like regular kids because of their cancer. By fundraising for Cops for Cancer we will be able to give those kids the opportunity to have fun and make memories at camp, despite the challenges they face due to their illnesses.
As well as the money I raise, my hair will be made into a wig for someone who has lost their hair from their cancer treatment and can't afford to buy their own wig.
Although I am quite nervous to lose so much hair, it is so worth it because it is going to such a fantastic cause. There are lots of people who don't have a choice about losing their hair, and besides, it's only hair and it will grow back. I am very excited for this year's Tour de Rock and to see how many kids we can send to camp!
Please pledge me and help me reach my fundraising goal of $1 500! Every donation helps and I appreciate every single dollar! Online pledging is secure and it saves the Canadian Cancer Society money by reducing administrative costs.
Thank you so much for your support!
