In 2018, my wife Kim, our friend Kayley and I took over the Sayward Tour de Rock fundraising committee. We raised $16,000 in our little community of 400 people. It was a lot of work but very rewarding knowing what the end result of our efforts would mean to a child and their family.
I retired from the RCMP in January 2019 and decided to up my commitment and try out for the Tour de Rock team. I am proud and honored to have been chosen as one of this year’s riders.
The Tour de Rock team cycles from one end of the Vancouver Island to the other, covering 1,100 kilometers and visiting more than 27 communities along the way. Donations made to the Canadian Cancer Society through Cops for Cancer are used to fund life-saving research and caring support programs to reduce its impact on families and children. Every $1500.00 raised sends one kid with cancer to Camp Good Times for 1 week. That is one full week that they get to forget about the outside world and enjoy being a kid with other kids in the same situation.
Thanks for your support!
