Police officers 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, such as Pedal for Hope, 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.
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 life-saving research and caring programs like Camp Goodtimes to reduce its impact on families.
