Details

From September 19th to 27th, law enforcement and emergency services personnel will cycle across the Fraser Valley to engage communities en-route in raising money for childhood cancer. Donations made to the Canadian Cancer Society through Cops for Cancer are used to fund life-saving research and support programs like Camp Goodtimes.

Cops for Cancer first began in 1994, when Sergeant Gary Goulet of the Edmonton Police Service met Lyle Jorgenson, a then 5-year-old boy who had cancer. Goulet requested the meeting after learning that Lyle was being ridiculed at school because of his hair loss due to chemotherapy. Goulet was so moved by the boy’s story, he rallied his colleagues to shave their heads in solidary. The Cops for Cancer movement was born when Goulet contacted the Canadian Cancer Society to hold a head shaving fundraiser. The event concept spread and evolved to neighbouring police forces and eventually across the country raising millions of dollars for childhood cancer research and support services.
