Cops for Cancer has been committed to the fight for life since 1997 and has raised over $42 million to fund life-saving pediatric cancer research and caring support programs like Camp Goodtimes.
Over the last two decades, thanks to caring communities and supporters across the province, Cops for Cancer has brought hope to children and their families facing a cancer diagnosis. As one of the largest funders of pediatric cancer research in Canada, we are excited about the progress made over the years. One of these victories includes pediatric cancer survival rates which have increased from 71% in the 1980s to over 83% today.
First responders across the province play a leadership role in organizing the Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer events by involving the community in fundraising and cancer awareness activities. The events range from head shaves in public places to participating in bike rides to organizing various school-based fundraising activities. To raise funds in the fight against cancer, event participants collect pledges from their co-workers, friends, family and community members.
