My name is Claire and I am participating in Cops for Cancer 2020 - Tour de Rock to support the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society.
I am a grade 10 student and Cops for Cancer is something that is really important in my school. I participated in the same fundraiser last year but I was only canvassing, so this year I am excited to participate in a more meaningful way. I am going to be cutting my waist-length hair to raise money for the Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock. I have been growing out my hair for over a year, and I have cut it and donated it twice before.
The Tour de Rock is a bike ride done by local police and firefighters down Vancouver Island to help raise money to send children with cancer to Camp Goodtimes, which is a place where they will have a community and support.
This is a cause that I really believe in and I'm so glad that it is still happening this year despite the world wide pandemic. This has been a tough year for everyone, but if you could donate to this cause it would mean so much to me.
The money raised from this event helps fund leading-edge cancer research that is improving cancer treatments, preventing cancer and saving lives; provide reliable and up-to-date information on cancer, risk reduction and treatment; offer vital community-based support services for people living with cancer and their families; and advocate for healthy public policies.
Please pledge me and help me reach my fundraising goal! Every pledge shows families who have a child with cancer that they do not have to face it alone. Online pledging is secure and it saves the Canadian Cancer Society by reducing administrative costs.
Thanks for your support!
