Fundraising progress

Event Information

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have extensive impacts on people across Canada and physical distancing safety measures are still in place, we are focusing Cops for Cancer head shaves for the coming year to an online fundraising effort.

Police officers across the country play a leadership role in organizing the Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer events by involving the community in fundraising and cancer awareness activities such as head shaves. Since 1997, the program has raised almost $48 million to fund life-saving pediatric cancer research and support programs to raise funds to support our youngest Canadians through their cancer journey. 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 support programs for children and their families to reduce its impact.
