First responders from across the North Shore – police, fire, search and rescue team members – have joined forces for the first time and are riding in this year’s Tour De Coast to raise money to support children, youth and their families who going through their cancer journey.
We’ve all been touched by cancer, whether having battled it ourselves or supporting family, friends and colleagues with cancer. We are deeply aware how having a cancer diagnosis, particularly when diagnosed at a young age, can lead to a range of questions and emotions.
That’s why it’s so important we do this, together, and with your help!
Every $2,000 we raise sends a child to Camp Goodtimes, a medically supervised recreation program that provides an extraordinary experience for children and teens with cancer and their families. Whether at summer camp or through year-round programming, Camp Goodtimes is a transformative place where kids with cancer can just be kids, where families affected by cancer can connect, and where with the help of volunteers, kids take on new challenges and learn new skills.
Children are disproportionately impacted by cancer treatment, often suffering lifelong injuries as a consequence of their cancer diagnosis. Canadian Cancer Society funds pediatric cancer that gives young people the best chance to survive their cancer diagnosis and offset the impact of life-saving treatment.
Your donation, no matter how big or how small, will do a lot of good for children, youth and their families in our community.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for being a part of our goal of reaching over $50,000 raised. Together, we can do a lot of good for those that need our support most.
