Come and show your support for the Cops for Cancer Tour de North.

On Friday, September 14 riders will arrive at approximately 4:30 p.m. on their leg of the tour through Vanderhoof.

There will be a welcoming barbecue for a kabob by donation, put on by Integris Credit Union and Vanderhoof Co-op at the mall between 2 and 5 p.m. Also buy a balloon and win a prize.

Riders on tour undertake a seven day, 863km ride to raise funds and awareness of pediatric cancer. A portion of these funds also sends cancer fighting kids to Camp Goodtimes – a place of miracles that allows kids to be kids again in the midst of their fight.

Cops for Cancer is an exciting annual event that takes place each fall, when over a hundred law enforcement and emergency services personnel from across the province brave all types of weather as they cycle up to two weeks across the daunting terrain of Vancouver Island, Northern BC, the coast of British Columbia and the Fraser Valley.

Please join in and welcome the hometown and regional heroes, riders of the RCMP and BC Ambulance Service as they take up their fight against cancer.
