Cops for Cancer - Tour de Coast
Cops For Cancer Tour De Coast is a week-long fundraising effort organized by the Vancouver Police Department. The event features over 40 police officers, paramedics, sheriffs and border agents as they bike 800 km along the Sea to Sky corridor as well as Sunshine Coast, North Shore and Greater Vancouver area from September 18 - 26, 2019.
The goal of the event is to raise funds and awareness for pediatric cancer research, and help send children and their families to Camp Goodtimes where they can enjoy being in a safe medically supported environment.
The event will make a stop in Whistler and Pemberton on Sunday, September 22. Patrons are encouraged to join the Tour de Coast group at the Pemberton Valley Lodge at 4 PM or Marketplace IGA beginning at 9:40 AM. Stop by and interact with event participants and drop off your donations for the cause. You can also donate online at the Tour de Coast website.
The event has a special meaning to our staff and owner/president of the Pemberton Valley Lodge, David MacKenzie, who has been a long-time supporter and alumni of the event.
David MacKenzie personal statement.
I am delighted to be once again participating as an alumni member in the 20th Anniversary year of Cops for Cancer.
2012 was my first opportunity to ride with Cops for Cancer Tour de Coast, and I feel even more blessed for this experience because I am an Auxiliary RCMP Member. Through my day job as a hotel manager, I have been able to support this cause in various forms over the last 10 years.
I am not a scientist, I am not going to discover the cure for cancer, but I can do everything possible to help raise awareness and funds for the research into this awful disease. Specifically, our ride is to help raise money for pediatric cancer because no child should have to suffer through cancer.
If there is anything that you can contribute to help this fight, it would be greatly appreciated, even if it is only $5.
Thanks for your support!
