The Toronto Police Service is pleased to participate in this year’s Cops for Cancer Virtual Head Shave event scheduled to take place for the month of September to support the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society. As the Fundraising will continue for the entire month of September we encourage you to donate and share our page!
We all have known at least one person close to us who’s life was devastated by this terrible disease. Family members, friends and other loved ones are always impacted as well. To see a loved one fight for their life makes us feel helpless. The Toronto Police Service family has also lost many brothers and sisters, sworn officers and civilians alike to cancer. Cancer affects people from all walks of life; it sees no age, skin colour, language, racial background, gender, occupation, social economic status, political or religious beliefs. Simply stated, anyone of us can be affected.
Our loved ones with cancer who are about to undergo chemotherapy, have a very high chance of losing their hair. Both men and women report that losing hair is one of the side effects they fear the most. As such, we will also shave our head and stand side by side in solidarity to show our unconditional support for those currently diagnosed with caner.
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 us and help us reach our fundraising goal! Every pledge takes us one step further in the fight against cancer. Online pledging is secure and it saves the Canadian Cancer Society money by reducing administrative costs.
