I am participating in Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock to support the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society.
The money raised from this event helps 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.
I have followed the Cops for Cancer, Tour de Rock for a long time and always hoped that if I was ever a police officer posted to Vancouver Island that I would be able to take part in this worthy cause. It is a fantastic way to bring awareness and support to finding the cure for cancer. As a parent, I can’t imagine the pain families go through when their child is affected by cancer and I felt that I should play a part in helping put an end to paediatric cancer.
Over the past few months I have been able to get to know my junior riders and hear their stories. Gabe, Natalia and Annabel are such amazing kids to which I draw inspiration as I’m pedalling on this journey. Having them cheer me on is such an incredible feeling.
I am riding for my junior riders; Gabe, Natalia and Annabel and for my friends and family who have all been touched by cancer.
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.
Thanks for your support!
