I am participating in the Cops for Cancer Tour de Golden Horseshoe to support the work of the Canadian Cancer Society. The inaugural TourdeGH will bring together members of the Niagara Regional Police Service and some of our partner police agencies for a four day 400 kilometre bike ride throughout our Region. 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 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.
Recently, at a fundraising event in Port Colborne, I was very fortunate to meet Alex Luey and his dad, Scott. Alex is a cancer survivor and an inspirational young man and I'm dedicating my ride in this year's Tour de Golden Horseshoe to him.On Thursday August 9, Alex shaved my head at a fundraier at Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls. Few have noticed the difference.
I am looking for help from you and from others in our community to help me reach my goals. Without the support of communities, schools, individuals and businesses, Cops for Cancer TourdeGH is just a bike ride. I'm putting as many miles as I can on my bike over the next few months to make sure I'm ready for the challenge in September.
Thanks for your support!
