Cops for Cancer is taking place tomorrow afternoon – The Tour de North team travels over 850 km in seven days, through 10 communities, from Dawson Creek through Fort St. John and down to Williams Lake.
A community-wide welcome event for the 16 riders and five crew members will be held at Canadian Tire at 4 PM on Tuesday, September 15th, including a welcome BBQ (by donation.)
Guest speakers include Mayor Ackerman, a local young cancer survivor, a representative from the BC Cancer Society, and a tour rider.
Over 100 law enforcement and emergency services personnel from across the province brave all types of weather each fall, as they cycle up to two weeks across Vancouver Island, Northern BC, the coast of British Columbia and the Fraser Valley.
Donations made to the Canadian Cancer Society through Cops for Cancer are used to fund lifesaving research and caring support programs to reduce its impact.
