Cops offer thanks

Canadian Cancer Society thank you for your coverage of this year’s Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley.

Editor:

On behalf of the Canadian Cancer Society, I would like to thank you for your coverage of this year’s Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley. With your support, the four B.C. Tours raised over $2,600,000. Your coverage has truly had a direct impact on the overall success of the Tours.

Cops for Cancer donations allow the society to invest in pediatric cancer research, deliver information and operate support programs that improve the lives of children with cancer, survivors and their families – like Camp Goodtimes, the acclaimed summer camp at Loon Lake in Maple Ridge. Donations are also used to provide financial aid for travel, accommodation and cancer drugs.

The Canadian Cancer Society is the largest national charitable funder of pediatric cancer research. Cops for Cancer is the largest contributor to pediatric cancer research.

The society fights all cancers by working to eradicate cancer and improve the quality of life for people living with the disease. With your support, we know we can continue working to achieve our mission. For further information, visit our website at www.cancer.ca where you’ll find up-to-date information about cancer and recent cancer statistics.
